Publisher: Neil Wilson

Author: Jimmy Black and Michael TRB Turnbull

In Glasgow, death is always fatal. Students of glasgowness agree that there’s a distinctive Glasgow ‘take’ on mortality. The visitor making the journey through the graveyards of Glasgow will surely become aware of a special Glaswegian condition — apart, that is, from the common condition of death. You feel it when you start to absorb the atmosphere of the city — its elements of the sad, the arrogant, the courageous, the righteous, the hilarious and the hideous, blended in strange proportions, all to be assimilated and enjoyed along with the weird and wonderful stories of the occupants of those quiet places of timeless repose.
