Overview

Welsh se considera mai degraba un "activist social" decit un scriitor, romanele si povestirile sale avind ca personaje tineri din cultura marginala a consumatorilor de droguri. Renton, Spud, Begbie sint citeva dintre figurile care-si spun povestea in roman, folosind limbajul agresiv si argotic al scotienilor din Leith. Problemele lor legate de consumul de heroina, dilemele sexuale, intorsaturile ironice de situatie sint dublate de referinte constante la conflictele etnice, religioase si fotbalistice, care fac parte din mecanismele comunitatii din care provin.

Editorial Reviews

Nick Hornby
Irvine Welsh writes with skill, wit, and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing that has happened to British writing in decades. -- Sunday Times
From the Publisher
“A novel perpetually in a starburst of verbal energy – a vernacular spectacular…the stories we hear are retched from the gullet.”
Scotland on Sunday

“One of the most original writers in Britain. He writes with style, imagination, wit and force.”
— Nick Hornby, Times Literary Supplement

Jane Mendelsohn - New Republic
“The language in Trainspotting is... exhilarating once you get the hang of it, and finally poetic in its complications.... Literary in the best sense, using language at every level to tell a story.”
New York Times Book Review
“Blisteringly funny.... Don't abandon everything for the movie. It's worth making the effort with Trainspotting not merely because relatively few writers have rummaged through this particular enclave of British youth culture, but because even fewer have dug there so deeply.”
Times Out
“It is funny, unflinchingly abrasive, authentic, and inventive, unerringly on—and off—the pulse. It is a true cult, the kind of novel you press on perfect strangers. It validates a world fiction hasn't recognized before.”
Nick Hornby - Sunday Times
“Irvine Welsh writes with skill, wit, and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing that has happened to British writing in decades.”
Times Literary Supplement
“Irvine Welsh may become one of the most significant writers in Britain. He writes with style, imagination, wit, and force, and in a voice which those alienated by much current fiction clearly want to hear.”
David Foster Wallace
“Irvine Welsh is the real thing—a marvelous admixture of nihilism and heartbreak, pinpoint realism (especially in dialect and tone) and almost archetypal universality.”
