About the Author

Since 1981, when Alasdair Gray's first novel (Lanark: A Life in Four Books) was published by Canongate, he has published twenty books, most of them novels and short stories. In his own words, 'Alasdair Gray is a fat, spectacled, balding, increasingly old Glaswegian pedestrian who has mainly lived by writing and designing books, most of them fiction.'

Reviews

* Gray is a true original, a twentieth century William Blake. Observer * A great writer, perhaps the greatest writer living in Britain today. -- Will Self * One of the most gifted writers to have put pen to paper in the English language. -- Irvine Welsh * A necessary genius. -- Ali Smith * A genuine experimentalist. -- David Lodge * Alasdair Gray's Every Short Story is an exhaustive anthology of a reliably unreliable storyteller Telegraph * A typically compendious, inspiring, infuriating gallimaufry of [Gray's] short form prose...he is indeed a National Treasure -- Stuart Kelly Scotland on Sunday * Gray is a genius, a born storyteller whether at a visionary or a more down-to-earth level; even the poorest of the stories contains something intriguing or funny -- Theo Tate Guardian * Reading every short story he has ever written is consistently entertaining. This book is exhaustive, but never exhausting Sunday Telegraph * Gray's direct style means even the oldest piece here still feels vital; it's a treat for fans and excellent for newcomers -- Anthony Cummins Metro
