Old Men In Love is a book by Alasdair Gray, published by Bloomsbury in 2007. The book purports to be a found manuscript by John Tunnock, which Gray merely edits - from the author's earlier Poor Things, the writing presented as Tunnock's likewise recycles earlier material by Gray. Tunnock's unfinished trilogy of novels, based on the lives of Socrates, Fra Lippo Lippi and Henry James Prince, are re-workings of earlier stage and television drama by Gray.
