ROBERT HARRIS WINS 2014 WALTER SCOTT PRIZE at the Brewin Dolphin Borders Book Festival in Melrose.

Robert Harris has won the £25,000 Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction for his novel about the Dreyfus affair, An Officer and a Spy.
In keeping with tradition, the Duke of Buccleuch also presented him with a contemporary piece of glass; a Pool Plate from Lindean Mill. In the words of the Duke, “a place Walter Scott would have passed on his way to the Selkirk Court House.”
