John Buchan’s name is known across the world for The Thirty-Nine Steps

In the past 100 years the classic thriller has never been out of print and has inspired numerous adaptations for film, television, radio and stage, beginning with Alfred Hitchcock’s version. 

Yet there was more to him. He was a scholar, antiquarian, barrister, colonial administrator, journal editor, literary critic, publisher, war correspondent, director of wartime propaganda and a member of parliament. 

Ursula Buchan, his granddaughter, has drawn on recently discovered family documents to write this comprehensive and illuminating biography of a remarkable man and his times.
