• "Vigorous, stunningly funny...whimsical, warm, surreal, grotesque and brilliant"

  • "Irvine Welsh is a terrific mimic... This collection of stories is a chorus of voices - rude, rough, discordant, filthy and often very, very funny. It's a pleasure to watch him larking about with the language... Brilliant"

    The Times
  • "This new collection is a rambunctious return to the glory days of Trainspotting... Dazzlingly diverse... Sick and vigorous, written with Welsh's inimitable in-yer-face energy"

    Sunday Telegraph
  • "This smutty, macabre collection exudes a compelling energy"

    Daily Mail
  • "Scary, erotic and extremely funny"
