Born in Macbeth's castle

We have new biographies of Antarctic explorer Scott, writer John Mortimer, journalist Fergal Keane, Freud's wife Martha, actress Anna Massey and more. 'Title deeds : a work of friction' is the story of Liza Campbell's life as the last child born at Cawdor Castle, the family seat of Macbeth. 'Scorpion on the ceiling: a Scottish colonial family's adventures in South East Asia' is a fascinating tale of dangerous jungles, war and the infamous Changi Jail. In 'Someone like me', Miles Kington explores his eccentric childhood which involved dog training, borrowed lawnmowers, badminton, figs and unlikely brushes with the Catholic Church.
