Ursula Buchan: Beyond The Thirty-Nine Steps
Approx 1 hour

Tickets £11.00

The Thirty-Nine Steps, never once out of print for a hundred years, perhaps the world’s most famous thriller and regularly reinterpreted on screen, is John Buchan’s most famous novel. Beyond the Thirty-Nine Steps: A Life of John Buchan lays a vast and fascinating hinterland; the life of a scholar, member of parliament, an imperial proconsul, a director of wartime propaganda and much else. With access to unpublished family papers, Ursula Buchan has written a brilliant biography of her grandfather. A deeply admired and loved Governor General of Canada who was given a state funeral, Buchan’s early life was an unlikely prelude. Raised in the Gorbals, the son of a Free Church minister, he was at ease with shepherds and ambassadors, fur trappers and prime ministers. In this luminous account of a fascinating man, Ursula brings him alive.
