The builder of the White House, the hero of Aboukir Bay, a murderer who inspired Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, a decadent society hostess…

66 – The House that Viewed the World is set in 66 Queen St., a townhouse in north Edinburgh. It tells the story of extraordinary people associated with the house for 210 years, from 1790 until today, whose lives were empowered by the Scottish Enlightenment. Edinburgh emerges from its past to become the intellectual, banking and professional capital of an enlightened Scotland. The story reflects how our modern world is shaped but above all it is about its people; from those who were masters of their circumstances to prisoners, from heroes to villains, from people of conscience to those the subject of tabloid scandals.

‘[the book explores...] how lives interconnect, how we are all creatures of our time, how rich and complex life is in this sometimes shy and reticent city. Not for a moment does our interest flag. This is who we are, even if we have never entered the door of No. 66.’

- Alexander McCall Smith
