Sir Sean Connery has signed his name on the dotted line in a deal with one of Scotland’s leading publishers that will see him authoring a book on his life, as well giving his views on his native country.
The book, titled Scotland, will be jointly published in 2007 by two top publishers, Edinburgh-based Canongate and Polygon, and will be a collaborated effort of the former 007 star, and Scottish film-maker Murray Grigor, recent winner of a Creative Scotland Award.
"Our goal is to produce a very readable, visually stimulating and hopefully intriguing HIS-story of Scotland, with personal discoveries," the Scotsman quoted Sir Sean, as saying.
In Scotland, Connery will explore Scottish humour, literature, art, architecture, sport especially Edinburgh, where he was born, bred and famously worked as a milkman.
Sir Sean’s Scotland will be on bookshelves in stores in the UK in September 2007, in time to mark the 300th anniversary of the Treaty of Union between Scotland and England.
