Jemima and hollywood scots,
This review is from: The Wild Island (Paperback)
Jemima Shaw works best in a metropolitan setting. In this episode of Lady Antonia's crime-soap-series, our heroine finds herself in a Scotland of Nationalism and Heritage that has more than a few echoes of American popular portrayals of Scotland and Ireland in shows such as Murder She Wrote. Nonetheless, despite the winceable romanticism, this somehow works, probably because it marries Fraser the crime writer with Fraser the popular historian. To be read whilst wearing tartan and eating oats, thistles and shortbread.
