Irvine Welsh

Irvine Welsh is the celebrated author of numerous books including 'Crime', 'Marabou Stork Nightmares', 'Porno' and, of course, 'Trainspotting'. One Summer he hosted the Book Slam Barbecue alongside Alabama 3 and Adam Buxton - it was crackers fun. Another time he appeared in a boxing ring with World Champion, Junior 'The Hitter' Witter. His story 'Comeback Girl' is in 'One For The Trouble - Book Slam Vol. 1'. Suffice to say Irvine's one of our dearest friends. His latest novel is 'The Blade Artist', which marks the return of surely his most terrifying character. Enough said.
