Pornoby Irvine Welsh
Synopses & Reviews
The explosive sequel to Trainspotting - ten years down the line.
Still scheming, still scamming - its ten years later and the boys from Trainspotting are still trying to fight for the first-class seats as the locomotive careers at high speed towards the buffers. Simon "Sick Boy" Williamson is back in his native Edinburgh after a spell in London. Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father and businessman, he taps into an opportunity, which to him represents one last throw of the dice.
For this scam to work, Sick Boy needs bedfellows. A desirable one may be the lovely Nicola Fuller-Smith, a young student with enough ambition, ego and troubles to rival his own. However, to realize his dream of directing and producing a pornographic movie, Sick Boy teams up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton and a motley crew that includes the citys favourite ex-aerated-water-salesman, "Juice" Terry Lawson.
In the world of Porno, however, nothing is straightforward as Sick Boy and Renton find out that they have unresolved issues to address concerning the increasingly unhinged Frank Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other.
