Review:

"Vigorous, stunningly funny...whimsical, warm, surreal, grotesque and brilliant" ( Guardian)

"Irvine Welsh is a terrific mimic... This collection of stories is a chorus of voices - rude, rough, discordant, filthy and often very, very funny. It's a pleasure to watch him larking about with the language... Brilliant" ( The Times)

"This new collection is a rambunctious return to the glory days of Trainspotting... Dazzlingly diverse... Sick and vigorous, written with Welsh's inimitable in-yer-face energy" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"This smutty, macabre collection exudes a compelling energy" ( Daily Mail)

"Scary, erotic and extremely funny" ( Literary Review)

Book Description:

Five short stories from the undisputed funniest and filthiest writer in Britain - Irvine Welsh.
