Personal Quote:

[speculating how his imaginary character, Inspector Rebus, would view his creator] He'd find me a wishy-washy, lily-livered liberal who's never had to do a hard day's manual work in his life, who's been suckled by the state from birth. That's kind of why I like him. I like having these internal arguments with him about the way the world is. See more »
