A lecturer cornered in an embarrassing menage a trois, a Glaswegian Cinderella and an extremely talkative dentist all feature in this brilliant and original collection of tall tales from Alasdair Gray, author of "Lanark", "Poor Things" and "The Book of Prefaces". Bringing together social realism, sexual comedy, science fiction and satire, "Ten Tales Tall and True" proves that truth is indeed much stranger than fiction.
