An ambitious performed reading of Alasdair Gray’s play Fleck, featuring 18 authors and actors, closed the Edinburgh International Book Festival.

Gray himself was joined on stage for the sell-out event in Charlotte Square Gardens by Will Self, Ian Rankin, Janice Galloway, Cora Bissett and a host of renowned Scottish writers.

Nick Barley, director of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, said “This is the most ambitious event we have ever staged at the Book Festival, and we are delighted that it has been so well received by participants and audiences alike.”
