Author John D.O. Fulton discusses his recent book about 66 Queen Street in Edinburgh’s New Town, which tells the story of the people and events associated with the house over the course of 210 years. The diverse characters, whose lives were empowered by the Scottish Enlightenment, range from heroes to villains and from people of conscience to subjects of tabloid scandal and moral prurience.
