More Information
Alasdair Gray, born 28 December 1934, is a highly respected Scottish author who has won both the Whitbread Prize and the Guardian Prize for literature. Whilst never seen as exactly a mainstream bestseller he is well regarded by both collectors and reader. He is a man of many talents who also paints as well as writing plays for television and radio. For collectors, his first novel, Lanark, is the most difficult, and expensive title. Canongate did reissue the title in 1985 with a print run of 1,000 copies, all of which were signed by Gray. Several of the books saw no American edition, all those that did are duly noted and details given. In all cases, the English edition precede the USA and are much more collectable. ( Grey )
