'Any Human Heart' is William's Boyd's classic bestselling novel - now a major Channel 4 drama. Every life is both ordinary and extraordinary but Logan Mountstuart's - lived from the beginning to the end of the twentieth century - contains more than its fair share of both.

But as a son friend lover and husband he makes the same mistakes we all do in our search for happiness. Here then is the story of a life lived to the full - and a journey deep into a very human heart.
