The Boy From Nowhere

Harper Collins, October 2015 Growing up outside Glasgow, Gregor was fourteen he asked where he was christened and was told that he was adopted. But it wasn’t quite that simple. And so began an unfolding of truths, half-truths and polite cover-ups from his various families. In 2014 Gregor approached Times columnist Melanie Reid to help him tell his story. Together they travelled through the mining villages of central Scotland to uncover the mystery of his birth and early life. What emerged was a story of secrets, deception, tragic accidents and early death, coldness and rejection from some, but a welcome from the most unexpected of quarters. From the squalor of industrial Coatbridge after WWI to his own 1950s Glasgow childhood, via a love letter found in the wallet of a dead man, to the meeting with the stranger who claimed to be his sister outside Lost Property at Glasgow Central Station, Gregor’s story was about finding out who he was and where he came from.
