About this product
- DescriptionAlasdair Gray is one of the finest writers, painters and creatives working in the UK. Here, he creates a candid insight into his life with this autobiography; how growing up in post-war Glasgow influenced his thinking, his relationship with his parents, the influence and work of his peers, how he came to create his masterpieces such as 'Lanark' and '1982, Janine' and his musings on life, death and everything in between.
- Author BiographyAlasdair Gray is the author of 1982, Janine ; The Book of Prefaces ; Old Men in Love ; and Poor Things ; for which he won the Whitbread Novel Award and the Guardian Fiction Prize. His first novel, the loosely autobiographical, blackly fantastical Lanark, changed the landscape of British fiction, opening up the imaginative territory inhabited today by writers such as A. L. Kennedy, James Kelman, and Irvine Welsh. It led Anthony Burgess to hail him as the most important Scottish writer since Sir Walter Scott.
