Irvine Welsh

Irvine Welsh makes a welcome return to Seattle and to Elliott Bay with his novel, Dead Men’s Trousers (Melville House), which revisits the crew from his classic novel, Trainspotting. Yes, Mark, Begbie, Sick Boy and Spud are all back in town, and given their personal histories, addictions, confusion and desperation, is it surprising that one of these four is not going to survive?  

“Welsh makes these amoral misadventures so propulsive, so joyfully awful, that you have to go with the flow...this roués’ romp is about as much fun as you can have between two book covers.” —The Times.
