Karl Miller

Karl Miller founded the London Review of Books in 1979, and went on to edit it for many years. Formerly literary editor of the Spectator and the New Statesman, and editor of the Listener, he was also Lord Northcliffe Professor of Modern English Literature at University College London. Among his books are Cockburn's Millennium and Doubles, which Alan Massie has described as two of 'the most illuminating books about Scotland to have appeared in my lifetime.' Karl Miller's vivid portrait of James Hogg, Electric Shepherd, appeared in 2003.
