Alasdair Gray's first book of short stories is a masterful collection that further established him as one of Scotland's most original and important writers when it first appeared in 1983. This new edition, includes a new unlikely story, "Inches in a Column", that was lost at the time of original publication.
"An impressive, playful and beautiful book..". -- Times Literary Supplement
"The book is a wonder of ingenuity, a varied and rich collection in which Gray's abilities as a visual artist and illustrator are placed not only beside but within the products of his fertile imagination as a writer". -- The Washington Post
