Iv read just about all the work of Irvine Welsh and I am now looking for another author who writes similar stuff. Welsh tells it like it is and does not sugar coat anything.Does anybody have any suggestions on who I should read next?

Check out The Beatle Man by Scott Liddle. It's very similiar. In fact I found it easier to read than Walsh and I love him!!

Try Of Vicars and Tarts by Sonja Bigg. A brutal, gripping read from an amazing debut author. No sugar coating here! Fantastic and thought provoking murder story set in London. An absolute rollercoaster. You won't be able to stop reading.

try Brass by Helen Walsh. Just as unpleasant as Welsh but set in Liverpool.

Try 'Cain's Book' by Alexander Trocchi, the Scots predecessor of Welsh - Trocchi was a heroinn addict, an internationally acclaimed "outsider" author and I think Welsh himself would admit Trocchi is very important to him.

Check out Little Men by Ronnie Yax. Clubs, drugs, sex, violence, murder mystery and plenty of swearing. You can download the first 52k words for nothing to see if you like it!Little Men - The E Book (Part One)
