Other Worlds: The Fall Of The House Of Usher
Alasdair describes the terror he experienced as a child on first reading the stories of Edgar Allan Poe and rereads the start of one of his most famous works – The Fall Of The House Of Usher.
I made these recordings in what turned out to be the last year of my uncle's life - so I could spend more time with him and share with you the very great pleasure of sitting quietly at home with Alasdair listening to him read and talk about books.
You can find out more about the story behind Alasdair Gray rereads in A Gray Space a creative space inspired by Alasdair Gray.
I couldn't have made these podcasts without the help of my family and friends:
David Thomas - technical advice and support
Berniya Hamie – closing piano
Matthew Robinson – rereads logos
