Raucous, filthy and funny." (James Naughtie Radio 4 Today Programme) "Without question, our most distinguished living exponent of the so- called x93excremental vision of lifex94 ? a line that goes back (to pick a few names) via James Joyce, Swift, and Ben Jonson, to Chaucer, writers who have explored what meanings of human existence are to be found in the toilet bowl." (John Sutherland The Times) "Irvine Welsh, I think itx92s safe to say, is not a writer whox92s mellowing with age... Welshx92s [language is an] astonishingly supple invention: one that can combine scabrousness and lyricism, comedy and ruefulness in the same paragraph... [if] you fancy an authentic and often thrilling blast of full-strength Irvine Welsh, then youx92re in for a treat." (James Walton Spectator) "It's a stern reader who wouldn't fall for his filthy charm." (Sunday Telegraph) "Whether your interest is piqued by the ridiculously expensive bottles of whiskey and the extraordinary lengths an American will go to own them or your heart strings are pulled by Wee Jontyx92s anguished love story, therex92s a multitude of ideas and human emotions that Welsh brings out among the laughter." (Claire Inman Curious Animal Magazine)
Irvine Welsh was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. Raised in the tenement homes of Leith, the prefabs in West Pilton and the maisonettes in Muirhouse, he attended Ainslie Park Secondary School. At sixteen, he left education and took on various jobs, and eventually moved to London in the seventies. There he dabbled with the property market while spending his free time exploring the London punk scene. He then moved back to Edinburgh to study an MBA. Back home, and inspired by the nineties rave scene, he was fortunate enough to run into some fascinating characters whom he immortalised in his diary x96 and, later, in the pages of Trainspotting. At first dismissed for its unmarketable content, Trainspotting shot Welsh to fame, precipitated further by the release of the film, by Danny Boyle, three years later. Since then he has written eight other works of fiction. He currently lives in Chicago.
