(Bertie’s Back!)

44 Scotland Street, the world’s longest running serial novel, returns to the pages of The Scotsman newspaper on Monday 4 September. Don’t miss out on a daily dose of good cheer with the neighbours on Edinburgh’s favourite street. Then read it in book form from early November as The Stellar Debut of Galactica MacFee.

Alexander is in The Scotsman today talking about his favourite characters and the joy of reuniting with them every year.

This is the coming of age for Scotland Street, 18 years since it first appeared in The Scotsman.
