Alasdair Gray on Old Men in Love

Along with James Kelman and Janice Galloway, Alasdair Gray remains one of my favorite Scottish writers (the latter two names I’ve combined to create Alasdair Galloway, the protagonist in my novel). I’ve read Poor Things (one of our wedding table books) and Lanark. The former is a bizarre mix of satire (of Victorian ideals and morals) and sci-fi (macabre, somewhat twisted take on Frankenstein). The latter is not as playful. It’s a darkly comedic rendition, or expose, of our- human kind- inability to love. Jeff Vandermeer tells you why it’s one of his favorite books.

But now, Alasdair Gray has a new book! The title: Old Men in Love: John Tunnock’s Posthumous Papers.
