Movie Tie-in Edition


Irvine Welsh (Author)


Now a Major Motion Picture

Here is the Trainspotting crew ten years further down the line: still scheming, still scamming, still fighting for the first-class seats as the train careens at high velocity with derailment looming around the next corner. In this world, even the cons get conned. Sick Boy and Renton jockey for top dog, and out-of-jail and in-for-revenge Begbie is on the loose. But it’s drug-addled Spud who may be creating the most trouble.

Endorsements & Reviews

“Welsh writes some of the nimblest comedies around… [His] characters are a pack of solipsistic misfits…forever in pursuit of daft projects and concocting improbable rackets, the intricacies of which Welsh weaves together to hilarious effect.” — Laura Miller, Salon

“Damn if Welsh can’t write the hell out of anything!” — Ken Foster, San Francisco Chronicle

“A version of the English language that has seemingly been poured into a blender and whirred at high speed with a handful of razor blades.” — GQ

“Welsh’s ear for dialect doesn’t fail him in this worthy successor, and his fans won’t be disappointed.” — Library Journal

“A worthy sequel.... Charming, funny and sly, Porno is a good poke at all kinds of pretence and moral tidiness.” — Melanie McGrath, Evening Standard [London]
