Some of Me
Alasdair Gray


Alasdair Gray is one of the finest writers, painters and creatives working in the UK. Previously a winner of The Guardian Fiction Prize and The Whitbread Novel Award, Gray’s work has influenced a stream of authors and artists for 60 years.

Now, Gray creates a candid insight into his life with this autobiography; how growing up in post-war Glasgow influenced his thinking, his relationship with his parents, the influence and work of his peers, how he came to create his masterpieces such as “Lanark” and “1982, Janine” and his musings on life, death and everything in-between.

Some of Me is the defining work of the life of one of Britain’s greatest artists.
