Reheated Cabbage : Tales of Chemical Degeneration
Never-collected tales, including outrageous early stories from the Trainspotting years, plus a raucous new novella.
Reheated Cabbage gathers stories showcasing Irvine Welsh's trademark skills: vaulting imagination, brilliant vernacular ear, scabrous humor, and the ability to create some of the most memorable characters in contemporary fiction. You can enjoy Christmas dinner with Begbie at his Ma's and see how he greets his sister's boyfriend and news of their engagement. You'll discover in "The Rosewell Incident" why aliens speak hardcore Scots English and plan to put Midlothian roughs in charge of the planet. And you'll be delighted to welcome back "Juice" Terry Lawson and now internationally famous DJ Carl Ewart, and watch them as they meet an old nemesis, retired schoolmaster Albert Black, under the strobe lights of a Miami Beach nightclub. These stories, most first published in small magazines and out-of-print anthologies, are all wildly offbeat and will delight both fans of and newcomers to Welsh's world.
"A hilarious collection...Welsh shines most brilliantly when portraying his solipsistic Scots head-butting the rock-hard ceiling in hopes of escaping, be it through booze, drugs, soccer or sex, from a violent world that offers little peace but plenty of humor."
