Scotland Street Press

The Press was set up to publish "ANT". After 8 years research on Chasing Lost Time, the Life of C. K. Scott Moncrieff, Soldier, Spy, Translator,( published by Chatto and Windus and Vintage here in the UK and by Farrar Straus and Giroux in the US), Jean Findlay, the author, was left with masses of material. The creative works of C. K. Scott Moncrieff had never been collected and here they all were waiting to go to press. Being naturally impatient, she decided, like the Little Red Hen, to do it herself. Hence the birth of Scotland Street Press. The Press will go on to publish literary fiction, memoir and travel in book form.

Press Reviews

"A wacky, witty, off-the-cuff tale…Honest at all times, and without bravado or self-regard.” Country Life.

"One of the beautiful paradoxes of Nine Months in Tibet is that being such an amateur and reckless traveller makes Wolfe Murray an exemplary one.” The Herald.

"The book is a true story, set in 1986 and 1987, when Tibet was briefly open to independent travellers. It's about looking for work on the roof of the world, rubbing along with annoying backpackers, adapting to a strange culture, trekking among nomads and yaks, riding a horse across Tibet, witnessing a violent protest of Buddhist monks against the Chinese police and getting expelled by the Chinese police.” Press and Journal.

"This is a fascinating and thoroughly engrossing tale of a strange time spent in a strange place. Like the best travel writing, it conveys just what it must have been like to have the adventure of a lifetime. We are there with Mr. Wolfe Murray, experiencing his discomfort and anxiety, but sharing, too, his insights.” From the foreword by Alexander McCall Smith
