Author(s): Irvine Welsh
Troubled Environmental Health Officer Danny Skinner is engaged on a quest to uncover what he refers to as 'the bedroom secrets of the master chefs'. He regards the unravelling of this classified information as the key to learning genetic facts about himself and the crippling compulsions that threaten to wreck his young life.
'An exquisitely paced black comedy. It has clever and funny things to say. There was a rumour that Welsh's last book, Porno, was to be his last. You'll be glad it wasn't' Evening Standard
