"Like the best of Gray's work, Old Men in Love is funny and profane, but with a shuddering anger to the politics." --Jessa Crispin, NPR "Beautiful, inventive, ambitious and nuts." --The London Times "Our nearest contemporary equivalent to Blake, our sweetest-natured screwed-up visionary." --Evening Standard "Gray, it seems, is unwilling to muck about with a good formula... A work of some genius." --Independent on Sunday "The culmination of a lifetime spent honing his unique ideas and approach." --New Statesman "One of Alasdair Gray's best novels... A fine book by the Dickens of Glasgow." --The Independent "Ingenious, engaging." --Times Literary Supplement
