Editorial Reviews

Review

"Alasdair Gray is one of the most important living writers in English."  —New York Times Book Review on Lanark


"Like the best of Gray's work, Old Men in Love is funny and profane, but with a shuddering anger to the politics."  —Jessa Crispin, npr.com


"A master of pastiche and collage in words and pictures, Gray has found a way to perfectly evoke a cracked, slightly out-of-balance sense of reality."  —Newsweek on Poor Things


"A true original, a twentieth century William Blake."  —Observer


"The illustrations are as lavish, and the text as eccentric, as even the most optimistic Gray admirer could have wished."  —Jonathan Coe, author, The Rotters' Club

About the Author

Alasdair Gray is the author of 1982, Janine; The Book of PrefacesOld 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."
