"This long-awaited book is that rare beast: an autobiography that absolutely mirrors its subject . . . valiantly surprising and deeply rewarding." "Observer""Reseña del editor:
Although he is an indubitably international superstar, Sir Sean Connery still knows the city of Edinburgh practically street by street from delivering the morning milk as a schoolboy. His round included Fettes College, where Ian Fleming had sent his fictional James Bond after he was expelled from Eton.
BEING A SCOT is a vivid and highly personal portrait of Scotland and its achievements, which is self-revelatory whilst full of Sir Sean's desire to shine light upon Scottish success and heroic failure. His personal quest with his friend and co-writer Murray Grigor has been to seek answers to some perplexing questions: How did Scots come to devise so many new sports and games, or raise others to new heights? What gave fire to the Gothic tendency in Scottish literature? Why have so many creatively inventive and influential architects been Scots? Where did Scotland's unreal blend of psychotic humour originate? And what about the national tradition of self-deprecation sometimes called the Scottish cringe?
Sean Connery offers a correction to misconceptions that many believe are part of the historical record whilst revealing as never before his own vibrant personal history.

Descripción Phoenix, 2009. Condición: New. This unusual book, written with Murray Grigor, is far removed from the standard actor's memoir. Although Connery does indeed recount his Edinburgh childhood, early career and later life, he employs this biographical framework as a springboard for a series of entertaining discussions of Scottish identity as reflected in the nation's art, literature, architecture, sport. and its surreal humour. The result is a stimulating and very personal inquiry into what it means to be Scottish. Nº de ref. del artículo: 223447
