About this title
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.About the Author:
Alasdair 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."
