No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A major new novel about the scottish way of death, from one of Glasgow's most accomplished writters. Alan Spence's first book, a volume of stories called its colours thay are fine won him great praise and has remasined in print since first publication, popular in schools and colleges in Scotland for its straightforward but vibrant view of life in the Glasgow vernacular. His long awaited new novel, way to go lifts the lids on the Glasgow undertaking industry and continues his striking, bleaky funny explorations of the themes of spirituality and emotional salvation.

About Alan Spence

See more books from this Author
The writer is, by his own admission, a reluctant author. Writing for him has always been a personal and private journey, sometimes exposing deep emotions involving family and friends. The verses in this book were never meant to be read by anyone other than himself. It is only due to the constant bullying from his wife and daughter to publish that he has agreed to unleash his thoughts on the world at large.
Published July 13, 1998 by Weidenfeld & Nicolson. 288 pages
