Summary
'Probably the greatest novel of the century' Observer 'Remarkable . . . A work of loving and vivid imagination, yielding copious riches' WILLIAM BOYD Lanark, a modern vision of hell, is set in the disintegrating cities of Unthank and Glasgow, and tells the interwoven stories of Lanark and Duncan Thaw. A work of extraordinary imagination and wide range, its playful narrative techniques convey a profound message, both personal and political, about humankind's inability to love, and yet our compulsion to go on trying. First published in 1981, Lanark immediately established Gray as one of Britain's leading writers
Summary
Lanark, an inhabitant of the sunless city of Unthank, mysteriously turns up at the Institute, where he consults the Oracle and, in search of his past, embarks on a journey through the Intercalendrical Zone
