BOOKS: On the bedside table of Iain Lumsden

'I've just finished A View from the Sidelines by the Queen's press secretary Michael Shea, who now lives in Edinburgh. To replace it, I've begun The Scots' Crisis of Confidence by Carol Craig, which was recommended by a friend. Finally, there's the very charming and funny My Name Escapes Me by Alec Guinness, which I'm taking ages to read because it's kept in Standard Life's flat in London, so I only dip into it when I'm there.'
