    A History Maker

    £9.99
    A tale of border warfare, military and erotic, set in the twenty-third century, where the women rule the kingdom and the men play war games. But Wat, the History Maker himself, does not play entirely by the rules, and when a woman, Delilah Puddock, joins the fray, this 'utopian' history is further enlivened.

    A tale of border warfare, military and erotic, set in the twenty-third century, where the women rule the kingdom and the men play war games.

    This is the fictional memoir of Wat Dryhope - edited, annotated and commented upon. History has come to an end, war is regulated as if it's all a game. But Wat, the History Maker himself, does not play entirely by the rules, and when a woman, Delilah Puddock, joins the fray, this 'utopian' history is further enlivened.

    Alasdair Gray cleverly plays with the notion and writing of history, as well as perennial modern debates on war, sexism and society - entertaining and thought-provoking, this is a delightful satire illustrated throughout by the author.
