Something Leather, by Alasdair Gray

  • A novel told in a series of vignettes. Described as Dickensian in its depiction of Glasgow and its people, ‘Something Leather’ takes on a large number of other personalities across a wide social range.

    Gray claims in the epilogue, titled ‘Critic fuel’, that the book was
    inspired by a conversation with Kathy Acker who encouraged him to write from a female perspective. The resulting novel focuses mostly on the sexual lives of three women, and follows them into their exploration of lesbianism, sexual sadism, and abuse.
