1922 novel by Sir Edward Montague Compton Mackenzie, (1883-1972) was born into a theatrical family. His father, Edward Compton, was an actor and theatre company manager; his sister, Fay Compton, starred in many of James M. Barrie's plays, including Peter Pan. Mackenzie went to great lengths to trace the steps of his ancestors back to his spiritual home in the Highlands, and displayed a deep and tenacious attachment to Gaelic culture throughout his long and very colourful life. Best known perhaps for his Hebridean comedies Whisky Galore (1947) and Monarch of the Glen (1941) (sources of a successful film and a television miniseries respectively), Sir Compton Mackenzie published almost a hundred books on different subjects, including ten volumes of autobiography.
