I find it hard to believe any fan of Alisdair Gray would be disappointed with this book. I believe it provides a fascinating insight into the mind and motivation of a career author. One for who writing isn't his main passion. It was written by a friend and employee so it isn't the full horror but there are enough hints to be entertaining ! The co author is of course Gray himself, pushing his post modern 'author in the plot' agenda ever further by giving interviews and bravely agreeing to the project.
