Biographical

While the world teems with the champions of fiction titles, there are those who find that the twists and turns of real life are more than enough to keep them hooked on a good book. They find the joys and nuances of nonfiction of great value, especially when it comes to the art of biography.

 This is a genre that never gets old – from the heights of the royals to the kitchen sinks of your next door neighbour, a biography is a gateway to understanding a life and lifestyle that’s not your own. And by spending time with another person this closely, maybe you’ll find out something important about your own life.

 There’s nothing like biography, actually, when it comes to showing that people are people and we all have something in common. No matter if you’re reading notes scribbled years ago by the movers and shakers of Scottish history, modern approaches to important figures or the tell-alls of popular celebrities, there’s always something to learn when you read biographies or memoirs.

 And East Neuk Books is the best place to find the latest and greatest Scottish biographies.
