Who says punks can't age gracefully? A tale of four friends growing up and growing apart, Glue demonstrates a maturity and optimism typically absent in Welsh's oeuvre. This isn't to say that he's gone soft, or lost his frequently cruel sense of humor. He's still angry, still rooting for the underdog and still capable of forcing his readers to stare into the abyss that is the dark side of human nature. Glue is certain to please new readers, as well as his legion of fans.
