Porno

Author(s): Irvine Welsh

Fiction

"Brilliantly written, inventive, funny, appalling, frightening and every bit as good as Trainspotting." --Mail on Sunday
Ten years on from Trainspotting, Simon 'Sick Boy' Williamson is back in Edinburgh after a long spell in London. Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father and businessman, Sick Boy taps into an opportunity, which to him represents one last throw of the dice. However, to realise his dream of directing and producing a pornographic movie, Sick Boy must team up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton and a motley crew that includes the city's favourite ex-aerated-water-salesman, 'Juice' Terry Lawson.

In the world of Porno, however, nothing is straightforward, as Sick Boy and Renton find out that they have unresolved issues to address, concerning the increasingly unhinged Frank Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other.

Highly entertaining" * Sunday Times * "Funny and eloquently obscene" * Daily Telegraph * "A worthy sequel... A touching love song to the possibilities and limits of friendship.
