Trainspotting




One of the most important novels of the late 20th century - an absolute must-read

Choose us. Choose life. Choose mortgage payments; choose washing machines; choose cars; choose sitting oan a couch watching mind-numbing and spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fuckin junk food intae yir mooth. Choose rotting away, pishing and shiteing yersel in a home, a total fuckin embarrassment tae the selfish, fucked-up brats ye've produced. Choose life.

Praise for Trainspotting

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

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

One of the most significant writers in Britain. He writes with style, imagination, wit and force

Times Literary Supplement

The voice of punk, grown up, grown wiser and grown eloquent

Sunday Times

An unremitting powerhouse of a novel - Loud with laughter in the dark, this novel is the real McCoy

The Herald

A novel perpetually in a starburst of verbal energy - a vernacular spectacular...the stories we hear are retched from the gullet

Scotland on Sunday

The Scottish Celine

Guardian
