Irvine Welsh - You're Booked You're Booked

    • Books

This week we're delighted to delve into the reading habits of a genuine living legend: Irvine Welsh! Irvine is an acclaimed and frequently controversial novelist, playwright, director screenwriter and short story writer. His first novel was the massively popular Trainspotting (turned into an equally popular film) and he has produced 10 more novels with the latest being The Seal Club, a collaboration with Alan Warner and John King. We talked to him about rereading, music books, the joys of a chunky read, the importance of Evelyn Waugh and how he may have inadvertently killed Waugh's son, Auberon.
