If anyone has enjoyed the three books of memoirs from Maryhill author Robert Douglas (Night Song of the Last Tram, Somewhere to Lay My Head and At Her Majesty's Pleasure) they might like to know that he has now published his first novel. Whose Turn for the Stairs is set in a fictional Maryhill close (18 Dalbeattie Street) and tells the stories of the families living there.

It's a great read and is the start of a trilogy which will follow the families from the 1940s to the 1970s.

Thanks, BB, I've asked my daughter who lives in London to send me the book for Christmas. She is always looking for ideas for Christmas presents so she will be glad to do it.

Cheers.
