Publisher Review

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 * The best book ever written by man or woman... Deserves to sell more copies than the bible * Rebel Inc * The voice of punk, grown up, grown wiser and grown eloquent * Sunday Times * Welsh's skill as a storyteller is undeniable, bringing both wit and compassion to a grim subject matter. If you liked Danny Boyle's film adaptation, you'll love the original. -- Maddy Searle * i * Abhorrently dark and raw to the core, Trainspotting is an insight into one of life's many ugly personalities - addiction and the accompanying domino effect of grim inevitabilities... Irvine Welsh's novel will always be a cult classic. -- Tori Chalmers * Culture Trip *
