Members of the team at Scottish Review of Books were greatly saddened to hear of the death of Alasdair Gray. To read a little more about him, link here to an earlier SRB interview with the writer and artist best known for this four-book work, Lanark. There is also a link to an SRB article by Rodge Glass who worked with Alasdair Gray and who wrote his biography. And, for an example of his writing, you can read an SRB article by Gray on Tom Leondard.
For more on Alasdair Gray you can find an appreciation on the Guardian’s website.
