Rodge Glass

Born in Cheshire but now living in Scotland, Glass studied at Glasgow University and began shaping his debut novel, No Fireworks, which was published in 2005. Hope for Newborns, a remarkable dark comedy, was published a few years later, but it was with Alasdair Gray: A Secretary’s Biography (2008) that Glass really turned heads. He garnered his information about Scottish writer and artist Alasdair Gray while working as his personal assistant, and the biography proved highly successful, winning him the Somerset Maugham Award. Now the proud owner of a PhD (earned with an academic version of A Secretary’s Biography), Glass is the Writer in Residence at Strathclyde University, which was where he first studied as an undergraduate.
