Author(s): Alexander McArthur
No book is more associated with the city of Glasgow than No Mean City. First published in 1935, it is the story of Johnnie Stark, son of a violent father and a downtrodden mother, the 'Razor King' of Glasgow's pre-war slum underworld, the Gorbals. The savage, near-truth descriptions, the raw character portrayals, bring to life a story that is fascinating, authentic and convincing.
The half million selling classic novel of the Glasgow slum underworld.
No Mean City is the work of two authors, A. McArthur and H. Kingsley Long.
