Description

John Buchan’s name is known across the world for The Thirty-Nine Steps, yet there was vastly more to ‘JB’. He was a scholar, antiquarian, barrister, colonial administrator, journal editor, literary critic, publisher, war correspondent, director of wartime propaganda, member of parliament and imperial proconsul.

His improbable marriage to a member of the aristocratic Grosvenor family means that this account of his life contains, at its heart, an enduring love story. Ursula Buchan, his granddaughter, has drawn on recently discovered family documents to write this comprehensive biography.

‘Apart from Buchan’s relentless work ethic, what shines forth from these pages is his generosity of spirit . . . Ursula Buchan shows a similar generosity of spirit in this wonderfully fluent biography.’ Justin Marozzi, Financial Times
