SCOTLAND: THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY
Alexander McCall Smith describes Scotland: The Autobiography, 2000 Years of Scottish History By Those Who saw It Happen as an unqualified triumph. Rosemary Goring’s book is composed of eye-witness accounts from Tacitus, Mary Queen of Scots, Oliver Cromwell, Adam Smith, David Livingstone, and The Big Yin, AKA Billy Connolly, but also from crofters, criminals, servants, housewives and poets. Goring is the literary editor of The Herald in Glasgow, and the author of two works of historical fiction: After Flodden (the 1513 battle in which the English annihilated the Scots) and its sequel Dacre’s War. Join her in an hour’s examination of her country with Jim Mora.
