Product description


"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)

"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)

"The voice of punk, grown up, grown wiser and grown eloquent" (Sunday Times)

"The best book ever written by man or woman... Deserves to sell more copies than the bible" (Rebel Inc)

"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)


`A complex, episodic read'
