Don't you love it when novels feature locations you know? An Edinburgh connection is usually a good draw for me, but I hadn't expected more than a passing reference to the city in Peter May's The Lewis Man which is set principally in the Outer Hebrides. However, the events of one major strand of the plot take place in and around the building pictured. Nowadays it's 'Modern Two', part of the National Galleries of Scotland, but fifty or sixty years ago it was an orphanage - there's a bit more about it in this post. Close by are Dean Village and the Dean Bridge - you can get a glimpse of them here - again, locations which play a very important part in the action of the book.
The novel's epigraph is from The Old Fools by Philip Larkin:
"That is where they live: Not here and now, but where all happened once,"
and you'll see if you read the book - which I can highly recommend - just how germane that line is and how it relates to these Edinburgh locations.
