Lanark, a modern vision of hell set in the disintegrating cities of Unthank and Glasgow, tells the interwoven stories of Lanark and Duncan Thaw. A work of extraordinary imagination, its playful narrative conveys 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 established Alasdair Gray as one of Britain's leading writers and kick-started the modern renaissance of Scottish literature.

Probably the greatest novel of the century . . . It marked the beginning of a new era" ― Observer

"One of the landmarks of twentieth-century fiction . . . Lanark changed the landscape of Scottish fiction, opening up the imaginative territory inhabited today by writers such as A.L. Kennedy, James Kelman and Irvine Welsh" ― Guardian

"One of the seminal works of Scottish literature, a book credited with kick-starting Scotland's literary renaissance" ― Sunday Times
