Rave

Vintage Minis




Vintage Minis bring you the world’s greatest writers on the experiences that make us human – from birth to death and everything in between

Irvine Welsh, 'poet laureate of the chemical generation', exposes the seamy underbelly of rave’s utopian dream. Lloyd, our permanently pilled-up protagonist, pushes his weekends to breaking point and beyond in this frazzled trip through Scottish clubland. He experiences the vertiginous uppers and downers of the Second Summer of Love, dabbles in a spot of disc jockeying and closes in, gradually, on some kind of redemption…

Selected from Irvine Welsh's novel Ecstasy.
