Irvine Welsh

What Douglas Stuart Says: The arrival of Trainspotting was an earth-shaking cultural moment and it had a huge influence on me. We follow a clutch of Edinburgh junkies and loose friends as they weave together in and out of different stories, some comedic, some utterly tragic. Despite the bleak subject matter, this book sings and, in the darkest moments, it shines with humour and friendship. Every character here is alive – unlikeable or severely damaged, perhaps, but they are still more alive than most.
