Product description

Review

'A copy should be pressed into the hand of every Glasgwegian at birth.' Alan Taylor, Sunday Herald 'A work of love.' Alex Benzie, The Herald 'Jack House was certainly the journalist most famous for writing about Glasgow.' Tom Shields, The Sunday Herald --http://www.nwp.co.uk/cgi-bin/cart.cgi?action=search&pageid=125

About the Author

Jack House was known as 'Mr Glasgow' and his face was familiar throughout the city. His knowledge of Glasgow knew no bounds. Heart of Glasgow remains his most authoritative work on the city. Jack House was born in Glasgow in 1906 and never wanted to live anywhere else. He left school at the age of 15 and was trained as a chartered accountant, but 'saw the light' in time to give up accountancy and become a newspaperman. He wrote for newspapers and the BBC from 1928. During the Second World War he served with the Gordon Highlanders before being transferred to the Army Kinematograph Service, because he had written a number of documentaty film scripts. Eventually he became scenario editor of the AKS with the rank of captain and worked alongside Peter Ustinov, Eric Ambler and other soldier-scriptwriters. He was a regular contributor to newspapers and television and wrote more than 30 books, mostly about his native city. He died in 1991.
