From the number one bestselling author of Trainspotting
Meet Lucy Brennan – an aggressive personal trainer who has just become a media hero after taking down a would-be gunman in Miami.
The one witness to the daring rescue is Lena Sorensen – an overweight depressive who is becoming increasingly obsessed with Lucy…
Irvine Welsh’s latest creation captures the 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.
[Welsh] has never written with greater verve... This is a novel packed with energy.
Shady, crazy and dark.
Welsh doesn’t disappoint… Bag yourself a ringside seat.
This is a visceral romp of a novel, a manic endorphin rush of a read that nevertheless also manages to sneak in some serious commentary on the state of American society, putting this book right up there with the best of Irvine Welsh’s work.
Not only cleverly conceived but genuinely, hauntingly, transgressive.
