An Interview with Dorothy Dunnett

Via DunnettCentral on Twitter I found this video of my favorite author Dorothy Dunnett when she was interviewed back in the early 1990’s.  I was particularly interested in her discussion of her life as an artist and seeing some of her early sketches of her son.  

And I liked hearing about her research and her relationship with her husband Alistair Dunnett, who at one time was the editor of The Scotsman.  Although she talked about living to be 150, she died much too young at the age of 78, in 2001.
