    Irvine Welsh And The Trainspotting Phenomenon: Irvine Welsh And The Trainspotting Phenomenon
    John Neil Munro - Paperback - Polygon
    In the mid-1980s Irvine Welsh's life was going nowhere fast. His teenage dreams of being a footballer or a rock star were over, and he was stuck in a series of white-collar jobs which he loathed. With the last throw of the dice, he started to write. In 1993 his debut novel - which centred on the desperate day-to-day struggles of a group of Edinburgh schemies and junkies - was published. This title offers the inside story of the 'Trainspotting' phenomenon, with contributions from the key players and rare, unseen photographs.
