About the Author:

Lewis Grassic Gibbon (1901-1935) was the pen name of James Leslie Mitchell, one of the outstanding figures in Scottish literature. Acclaimed the world over for stories of great power and originality, his trilogy of novels A Scots Quair is his most renowned literary work. Gibbon was amazingly prolific and literally worked himself to death, producing seventeen books in seven years.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

“Spartacus is told with Gibbon’s characteristic verve and economy. As everywhere in Gibbon’s work, the reader is drawn without preamble into the fully active plot. On balance, the style works triumphantly. Narrow, brutal, shaped by forces beyond its control, continuously threatened by sudden death or agonizing retribution by a ruthless army of Masters, the slave experience forming the totality of this narrative is caught with unpleasant but accurate forces. It was a desperate time―and Gibbon realistically recreates that desperation.”―Ian Campbell, from the Introduction
