'A story finely told ... Glass has produced a portrait that is critically intimate to the point of being genuinely, unashamedly loving' Prospect 'Alasdair Gray is spectacularly eccentric ... [This book] will ... delight the many devotees of the Gray cult' Financial Times 'A strange and nourishing stew' Time 'Honest and revealing, tender and, very unacademically, moving' The Herald --This text refers to the Digital edition.
About the Author
Rodge Glass is now a novelist (No Fireworks and Hope for Newborns, Faber, 2005 and 2008), but wasn't when he first encountered Gray in a Glasgow pub in 1998. Since then, while pursuing his own writing ambitions, he has filled many roles in the life of the writer/artist. He has taken dictation whenever and wherever asked: whether Gray is in bed, in hospital or drinking soup cold from the can, he is there with a pad or a laptop, awaiting instructions. He has been barman, tutee, secretary, signature forger, driver, researcher, advisor, chief technology negotiator, tea-maker and paper boy, with varying degrees of success. In this book Glass attempts one more role - biographer. Born in Manchester, he lives in Glasgow. --This text refers to the Digital edition.
