Trainspotting by Irvine Welsh
'An unremitting powerhouse of a novel. Trainspotting is a loosely knotted string of jagged, dislocated tales that lay bare the hearts of darkness of the junkies, wide-boys and psychos who ride in the down escalator of opportunity in the nation's capital. Loud with laughter in the dark, this novel is the real McCoy.' The Herald
Choose us. Choose life.
Choose mortgage payments; choose washing machines; choose cars; choose sitting on a couch watching mind-numbing and spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fuckin junk food intae yir mooth.
Choose rotting away, pishing and shiteing yersel in a home, a total fuckin embarrassment tae the selfish, fucked-up brats ye've produced.
'Welsh writes with a skill, wit and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing that has happened to British writing for decades" - Sunday Times
Our favourite quote: 'Now there is apparently a causal link between heroin addiction and vegetarianism.'
