A Life in Pictures: An Autopictography by Alasdair Gray (Hardback) (ISBN: 9781841956404)

The autobiography in words and pictures of one of Britain's most fascinating and acclaimed writers and artists, Alasdair Gray

This is the life-work of one of Britain's most renowned and beloved writers and artists, Alasdair Gray.Alasdair Gray is known throughout Europe and beyond for his writing ("Lanark"; "Unlikely Stories, Mostly"; "1982, Janine" among many others), but he is also a highly regarded artist who not only illustrates and designs his own books, but has created many beautiful and intriguing murals, portraits, paintings, posters - some of his most recent and vivid work adorns the revived Oran Mor, in Glasgow.Alasdair started painting and writing from an early age, and at 71 he's still vigorously doing both. In this autobiography he gathers together the paintings that have mattered most to him over the years, and weaves the story of his life through and around them in his own inimitable way.Beautifully and copiously illustrated, designed by himself, this is life as seen by one of the millennium's most unique, funny and wry creative geniuses.
