Skagboys by Irvine Welsh


Original Title: Skagboys

BEFORE TRAINSPOTTING CAME SKAGBOYS The Number One Bestseller Mark Renton has it all: he’s good-looking, young, with a pretty girlfriend and a bright future. But there’s no room for him in the 1980s and when his family starts to fracture, Mark’s life swings out of control. The way out is heroin. It’s no better for his friends – Spud Murphy is laid off from his job, Tommy Lawrence finds himself sucked into a life of petty crime, violence and the world of the psychotic Franco Begbie. Only Sick Boy seems to ride the current, scamming and hustling his way through it all. Exhilarating and moving, Skagboys charts their journey from likely lads to young addicts in a decade which changed Britain forever.

The Sex Lives Of Siamese Twins by Irvine Welsh


Original Title: The Sex Lives Of Siamese Twins

When Lucy Brennan, a Miami Beach personal-fitness trainer, disarms an apparently crazed gunman, the police and the breaking-news cameras are not far behind. Within hours, Lucy becomes a hero. The solitary eye-witness, the depressed and overweight Lena Sorenson, thrilled by Lucy's heroism and decisiveness, becomes obsessed with the trainer and enrolls as a client at her Bodysculpt gym. It quickly becomes clear that Lena is more interested in Lucy's body than her own, and a budding fatal attraction takes hold. However, it's when Lucy imprisons Lena, and can't stop thinking about the sex lives of Siamese twins, that the real problems start. In Lucy and Lena, Irvine Welsh has created two of his most memorable female protagonists, and one of the most bizarre, sadomasochistic folie à deux in contemporary fiction. The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins taps into two great obsessions of our time--how we look and where we live--and tells a story so subversive and dark it blacks out the Florida sun.

A Decent Ride by Irvine Welsh


Original Title: A Decent Ride

Irvine Welsh returns to Edinburgh, the home of Trainspotting and so many of his novels since, with a new novel featuring one of his most iconic and beloved characters—'Juice' Terry Lawson—that's thick on the Scottish brogue, heavy on the filth and masterful in its comedic timing. A Decent Ride sees Irvine Welsh back in Edinburgh, this time with one of his most compelling and popular characters front and center: the rampaging force of nature that is 'Juice' Terry Lawson, first seen in Glue. Juice is a man who contains multitudes: he's a top shagger, drug-dealing, gonzo pornstar and taxi driver. As we ride along in Juice's cab through the depraved streets of Edinburgh, Juice encounters a series of charmingly filthy characters, each of whom present their own, uh, unique challenges. Has he finally met his match in Hurricane 'Bawbag'? Can he discover the fate of the missing beauty, Jinty Magdalen, and keep her idiot-savant lover, the man-child Wee Jonty, out of prison? Will he find out the real motives of unscrupulous American businessman and reality-TV star, Ronald Checker? And, crucially, will Juice be able to negotiate life after a terrible event robs him of his sexual virility, and can a new fascination for the game of golf help him to live without . . . a decent ride? (The meaning of the title is starting to sink in now, huh?). So buckle your seatbelts and prepare for one unforgettable ride.

Anni 90 by Marco Frullanti


Original Title: Anni 90

Arriva per tutti un momento nella vita, quando arrivano i primi capelli bianchi o finisce la spensieratezza degli anni di cazzeggio universitario, in cui si ripensa ai nostri miti dell'infanzia. Nel caso di Marco "Frullo" Frullanti, nerd di vecchia data che l'infanzia non l'ha mai veramente superata, è andata ancora peggio: se avete la sfortuna di conoscerlo (rischio remoto, visto che sta sempre in casa a guardare vecchi film e a giocare a vecchi videogiochi) non farà altro che menarvela su quanto gli anni '90, considerati dai più un decennio sfigato, siano invece una "golden age". La prospettiva è quella della "Generazione Y", cresciuta col Nintendo 8 bit ma non con l'iPhone, quei laureati precari e "choosy" che hanno visto nascere internet, verso la fine degli anni '90, e quindi ne conoscono come nessun altro il retroterra culturale. Alla sua generazione e a quel decennio grigio e sbiadito, eppure così carico di sfumature per chi ha la pazienza di coglierle, Frullo ha voluto dedicare "Anni '90 - Dagli 883 a Carmageddon". Quattro capitoli che delineano quattro campi di indagini: la musica, i videogiochi, i film e le altre "nerdate". Se voi gli anni '90 li avete in qualche modo vissuti qui, tra una citazione nerd e una sviolinata nostalgica, potrete trovare una collezioncina di ricordi, e pure qualche riflessione.

Crime A Novel by Irvine Welsh


Original Title: Crime A Novel

“[An] inimitable combination of dark realism, satire and psychological insight . . . complicated, unsettling and at times beautiful."--Publishers Weekly, starred review In the wake of a nasty child-murder case, Detective Ray Lennox of the Edinburgh PD has suffered a full-scale breakdown. He’s placed on leave for mental retuning and takes off for a few days of sun in Miami. From there, Crime becomes an unmistakably Welshian blend of the macabre and the psychologically astute, as Lennox faces a dwindling supply of antidepressants, a bridal-magazine-toting fiancée, and cokehappy locals who lead him back into old habits and leave him to care for a child. Is he really in the right shape to be playing knight-errant to a terrified ten-year-old girl? Will his best instincts and worst judgments get them both killed, or find him the redemption he seeks?
