Reviews

"It's good to be brought back to Welsh's original hellfire"
Observer||"The stories combine sly humour with the tang of lived experience. It makes for a terrific collection, showcasing a writer who...has blossomed into one of the most distinctive, and distinguished, observers of British life"
Sunday Telegraph||"A total hoot to read. The first thing that strikes you about much of the material here is the amazing energy of Welsh's writing"
Independent on Sunday||"Welsh's work remains at once moving, repellent and worryingly funny"
TLS||"Full of fun, frenzy and filth"
Tatler

'The stories combine sly humour with the tang of lived experience. It makes for a terrific collection, showcasing a writer who ... has blossomed into one of the most distinctive, and distinguished, observers of British life'Sunday Telegraph

InReheated Cabbageyou can enjoy Christmas dinner with Begbie and discover how aliens addicted to Embassy Regal have Midlothian under surveillance. You will meet a husband who values a televised Hibs v Hearts game more than his wife's life and see two guys fighting over a beautiful girl agree - after a few pills and pints of lager - that their friendship is actually more important. And you will be delighted to welcome back 'Juice' Terry Lawson, and to watch what happens when he meets his old nemesis under the strobe-lights of a Miami Beach nightclub.
