´Probably the greatest novel of the century´ Observer
Remarkable . . . A work of loving and vivid imagination, yielding copious riches´ WILLIAM BOYD
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.
First published in 1981, Lanark immediately established Gray as one of Britain´s leading writers.
