Product description

Review

'Fry's range is impressive. His account of Edinburgh is in the style of Peter Ackroyd's history of London - digging into its dark corners rather than maintaining a historian's narrative'
-- Spectator

'This comprehensive look at his home city paints a vivid picture of the Scottish capital through the ages.'
-- Big Issue in Scotland

'intelligent and sensitive...a very good book indeed, one that no one who knows Edinburgh will want to be without, one that also reveals the character of this dramatic, admirable and often infuriating city to those unfortunate enough not to be acquainted with it.'
-- Literary Review

`He clearly loves Edinburgh and conveys that affection eloquently...Edinburgh is a delightful, erudite book and Fry a perceptive and provocative guide.'
-- Scotland on Sunday

`His account of the city's architectural history is as intelligent and sensitive as it is full.'
-- The Literary Review
