Mixing new and previously published but revised writing, Gray explores his life and reflects on a half-century of artistic work in his witty, self-deprecating prose A winner of The Guardian Fiction Prize and The Whitbread Novel Award, Alasdair Gray has influenced a stream of authors and artists for 60 years.
Now, Gray 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.
Funny, moving and deeply personal, this is the defining work of the life of one of Britain's greatest artists.
