No mean city

McArthur, A2002
Books
This is the story of Johnnie Stark, son of a violent father and a downtrodden mother, the 'Razor King' of Glasgow's prewar slum underworld, the Gorbals. The savage, near-truth descriptions, the raw character portrayals, bring to life a story that is fascinating, authentic and convincing.
