Summary
In Rebus's Scotland, Ian Rankin offers insights into the world of his books. It's a look at the world Rebus inhabits, but also the place he came from - the rural Scotland of Ranking's childhood. In writing his own autobiography, the author unlocks the secrets of what makes John Rebus tick. Everything from rock music to religious bigotry is explored in this, Rankin's first work of book-length non-fiction. In-jokes are explained, the genesis of characters such as Big Ger Cafferty and Siobhan Clarke revealed, and the complex machine of present-day Scotland, warts and all, comes under scrutiny by a writer famed for his scalpel-like uncovering of hidden truths."--BOOK JACKET
