New York, Lippincott & Crowell, 1980. Proof. Paperback. A near fine copy. A surreal Kafka-esque fantasy based in Gray's own Glasgow and a dystopic instantiation of Glasgow, and one of the finest works in the area. The book took 27 years from inception to publication. Jacket design by Gray, who was a graduate of the Glasgow School of Art. The present copy is an uncorrected proof for the US edition. The US edition, published by Lippincott & Crowell in wraps precedes the UK Canongate cased edition. The current proof notes the publisher as Lippincott & Crowell (Harper & Row acquired Lippincott and Crowell, separately at the end of the 1970s, which is why some sources note the publisher as Harper). Condition: some toning to the wraps, a little soiling to the foreedge. [8052, Hyraxia Books].
