Scott-land Stuart Kelly's biography of Sir Walter Scott defies classification in terms of genre. Rather than a literary biography, or critical study, it is a personal examination of the sometimes overwhelming affect Scott has had on Scottish identity at large, and on how his legacy affects the very act of writing in Scotland.

Review:

'In a smart, refreshingly uncynical book, Kelly examines Scott, Scotland and himself in an intelligent, lively analysis of a great small country' IAN FINLAYSON, THE TIMES 'A lovely piece of work - the best book on Scott, indeed, since Edwin Muir's Scott and Scotland' ANDREW O'HAGAN 'Kelly engagingly assesses Scott's various works and insightfully sets Scott in his context' THE INDEPENDENT --The Times, Andrew O'Hagan, The Independent

Sir Walter Scott s life and legacy is pored over as the genetic code for the country he created . --The Times, Saturday Review

Kelly s anatomy of Scott, past and present, is a bookish treat and never less than interesting. --The Sunday Herald

'Erudite, witty and challenging.' --Ian Wall, Scottish Review of Books

Kelly s anatomy of Scott, past and present, is a bookish treat and never less than interesting. --The Sunday Herald
