This is a portrait of a man whose life was more extraordinary than his novels. As a child he suffered from infantile paralysis, as a young man he experienced a tragic love affair, in middle age he endured prolonged illness and in old age financial ruin. Yet despite his difficult life Walter Scott became the first bestselling novelist, poet and historian. Hesketh Pearson's study is of a unique man who was both great and good.
