Being a Scot
Available in Stock
This unusual book, written with Murray Grigor, is far removed from the standard actor's memoir. Although Connery does indeed recount his Edinburgh childhood, early career and later life, he employs this biographical framework as a springboard for a series of entertaining discussions of Scottish identity as reflected in the nation's art, literature, architecture, sport... and its surreal humour. The result is a stimulating and very personal inquiry into what it means to be Scottish.
