Allan Massie at Borders Book Festival

No celebration of the 250th anniversary of Walter Scott’s birth could possibly be complete without Allan Massie’s The Ragged Lion. It is simply superb – an atmospheric and entirely credible imagining of this great writer’s life, his origins, his loves and how his talents blossomed in the Borders. Using the conceit of a newly discovered lost manuscript, in effect an autobiography of Scott, Massie creates an intimate view of his public and private lives, as well as a man aware of his declining powers, disturbed by dreams and fantasies. Alistair Moffat will talk to Allan Massie about this brilliant novel.
