Read full description of the books:
Lanark, a modern vision of hell, is set in the disintegrating cities of Unthank and Glasgow, and tells the interwoven stories of Lanark and Duncan Thaw. A work of extraordinary imagination and wide range, its playful narrative techniques convey a profound message, both personal and political, about humankind's inability to love, and yet our compulsion to go on trying.
This Canongate Classics edition includes an introduction by Janice Galloway as well as the author's �Tailpiece' (2001), an addendum to the novel.

Read information about the authorAlasdair Gray trained as a painter at the local Glasgow school of art. He was 47 when he published his first novel, Lanark (1981), which combines all sorts of genres, from sf to autobiography and literary criticism, into a fantastic account of the city of Unthank - a thinly disguised Glasgow.
Gray shows an interest in sex which borders on the unhealthy, as indicated by the title of his 1990 novel Something Leather, a novel that he compared to Chaucer. His other abiding interest is Scottish identity. He was a contributor to Lean Tales (1985), a work that prompted a revival of interest in Scottish writing. Gray's work always contains a satirical element.
