No Mean City Paperback / softback
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.
