  • Full of fascinating detail...and an excellent introduction and notes by Paul O’Keeffe

    TLS
  • Paul’s Letters remained out of print for almost two centuries until now, but Paul O’Keeffe, the masterly biographer...has reissued it in a fine scholarly edition

    Owen Dudley Edwards
  • The blaze of Scott's molten genius…Scott is patronised as a regional writer. There is some scholarly interest, but he is largely unread outside specialist university courses. Given the brilliance of his achievement, this neglect is absurd

    Independent
  • With 22 novels, six poetical marathons and 11 more prose works under his belt, the most celebrated Scotsman of his day was the first author ever to be a best seller in all three genres. What other writer, dead for 170 years, still has fishing boats and a football team named in his honour?

    Independent on Sunday
  • No author - not even Ian Rankin, Alexander McCall Smith or JK Rowling - has ever been as critically acclaimed and commercially successful as Scott

    Scotland on Sunday
