MEDIA REVIEWS
Vigorous, stunningly funny...whimsical, warm, surreal, grotesque and brilliant * Guardian *
Irvine Welsh is a terrific mimic... This collection of stories is a chorus of voices - rude, rough, discordant, filthy and often very, very funny. It's a pleasure to watch him larking about with the language... Brilliant * The Times *
This new collection is a rambunctious return to the glory days of Trainspotting... Dazzlingly diverse... Sick and vigorous, written with Welsh's inimitable in-yer-face energy * Sunday Telegraph *
This smutty, macabre collection exudes a compelling energy * Daily Mail *
Scary, erotic and extremely funny * Literary Review *

“Close to the bone”

This book of five short stories is best described as random and is certainly for the older readers. As per Irvine Welsh the book is written with care and flows beautifully from story to story. Each story is engaging... More
