With no schooling after the age of seven, Hogg struggled to form his own letters and taught himself the violin to while away the lonely hours working with his flock. Yet he went on to number literary giants such as Wordsworth, Coleridge and Walter Scott among his friends and acquaintances, to become a poet and novelist and to run a short-lived literary magazine called "Spy", the tone of which proved too robust for polite Edinburgh society. Having fathered two children, he married for the first time aged 50, to a woman 20 years his junior. Karl Miller's biography restores this overlooked figure to his rightful place in the literary history of Scotland.

"'Miller's writing seems to breathe the air of the period so steadily and so deeply that the reader might occasionally experience a part of himself venturing forth to mingle with the multitude of personalities on display' Andrew O'Hagan, Daily Telegraph"
