A man finds a bald patch on the back of his head that looks curiously like a face, then discovers he’s splitting in two. A bored student suggests digging a tunnel into the foundations of the art school. An elderly man is healed by hundreds of tiny people working on repairs inside his own head.Unlikely Stories, Mostly is Alasdair Gray’s first collection of short stories. Gloriously illustrated, darkly funny, and steeped in myth and fable, they capture Gray’s singular imagination.
