I have to say I have wondered sometimes about where Welsh got his inspiration from, and how it was that someone so articulate can have lived through the world he writes about and survived, and how if he hadn't lived through it how he could write about it so well. If I was a literary type now I could probably make a good case about how this book will show you the story behind the stories. It does give a great birdseye view of the world of Edinburgh (and beyond) that Irvine Welsh's books wind through and around.
Anyway, the book itself. It's about twenty chapters of stories about the author and Irvine Welsh's nights and days out together over the last thirty years, usually involving drunkenness, vomit, and in a surprising number of cases brushes with the law. I found myself laughing out loud, not as much as I would normally during a Welsh novel, but a good bit all the same. very entertaining, and if you liked Irvine Welsh, you'll love this...
