An original and brilliantly eccentric collection of stories from the legendary Scottish author.

A lecturer cornered in an embarrassing ménàge à trois, a Glaswegian Cinderella and an extremely talkative dentist all feature in this dazzlingly original collection of tall tales from Alasdair Gray, award-winning author of Lanark, Poor Things and The Book of Prefaces.

Bringing together social realism, sexual comedy, science fiction and satire, Ten Tales Tall and True proves that truth is indeed much stranger than fiction.
'Gray is a true original, a twentieth century William Blake' OBSERVER

'The greatest Scottish novelist since Sir Walter Scott' ANTHONY BURGESS

'One of the most gifted writers to have put pen to paper in the English language' IRVINE WELSH
