This text presents the books of Jonah, Micah and Nahum. The book of Jonah shows the people of Nineveh being forgiven, yet this overturns usual biblical narrative such as Micah and Nahum where Israel’s enemies are expected to get their come-uppance. With an introduction by Alasdair Gray.
Simply one of the best and most respected authors of modern times. Be thankful he just can’t stop writing. Since 1981, when Alasdair Gray’s first novel (Lanark: A Life in Four Books) was published by Canongate, he has published twenty books, most of them novels and short stories. In his own words, ‘Alasdair Gray is a fat, spectacled, balding, increasingly old Glaswegian pedestrian who has mainly lived by writing and designing books, most of them fiction.’
