Alasdair Gray

I am simply a wounded and dying man.
Who can be more regal than a dying man?

—  Alasdair Gray, Lanark. (Canongate Pub Ltd March 2003) Originally published 1981.

  1. I have not. I read the synopsis on Goodreads though and I am intrigued by its plot. I will look it up. Try to find a copy. I have a difficult time finding books in a format I can read. I’m actually blind and audio books are expensive and good narrators are even harder to find. Though I try not to let that stop me. I just purchased Lorca’s collected poems yesterday. There are some books one must simply own–even if you can’t easily read them. 🙂
