(From the publisher):
Lanark, a modern version of hell, is set in the disintegrating cities of Unthank and Glasgow, and tells the interwoven stories of Lanark and Duncan Thaw. A work of extraordinary imagination and wide range, its playful narrative techniques conveys a profound message, both personal and political, about humankind's inability to love, and yet our compulsion to go on trying.
