Alasdair Gray (born 28 December 1934) is a Scottish writer and artist. His most acclaimed work is his first novel, Lanark, published in 1981 and written over a period of almost 30 years. It is now regarded as a classic, and was described by The Guardian as "one of the landmarks of 20th-century fiction." His novel Poor Things (1992) won the Whitbread Novel Award and the Guardian Fiction Prize. He describes himself as a civic nationalist (albeit one deeply critical of a certain kind of English immigration into Scotland) and a republican. Gray's works combine elements of realism, fantasy, and science fiction, plus clever use of typography and his own illustrations.
