Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following the cult success of his first novel >Trainspotting<, this collection of Irvine Welsh's short stories went on to sell over 10,000 copies in Cape trade paperback. Uncompromising, unsettling, shocking and very funny, they range in style from bitter realism to demented fantasy. Publication coincides with the new novel >The Marabou Stork Nightmares<, again coming from Cape. Vintage.

Synopsis:

Bizarre, disturbing and hilarious writing from one of the literary world’s most uncompromising and original stars.

Two professors of philosophy turn pugilists; Leith removal men become the objects of desire for Hollywood goddesses; God turns Boab Coyle into a house-fly; and in the novella, “A Smart Cunt,” the drug-addled young hero spins off on a collision course with his past.

About the Author

Irvine Welsh is the author of seven works of fiction. Film rights for Porno have been sold to the company that made Trainspotting. He lives in San Francisco.
