Lanark: A Life in Four Books by Alasdair Gray
Lanark is a novel seething with political rage, a modern
vision of hell. It tells the story of Duncan Thaw, a young Glasgow artist.
Thaw’s Glasgow is a place of tenements, canals and middens, and
Thaw himself, a Fifties man, common and depressed. His travels give rise
to some of the best thinking about citizenship ever to appear in a novel.
