Gli invitti, La fortuna sta sempre nascosta, Lorraine va a Livingston. Tre «romanzi brevi» in cui l’occhio narrativo di Welsh si sposta, sensibile e mobilissimo, dalle strade delle periferie più squallide agli interni più protetti ed eleganti, dalle atmosfere e dai luoghi della notte ai paesaggi allucinati suggeriti dagli stupefacenti, secondo una tecnica cinematografica che procede per scorci rapidi, fulminei, componendo, alla fine, un quadro irriverente ma anche struggente e straziato della realtà. Tre storie estreme, beffarde, sboccate, incalzanti che confermano il talento del capofila della chemical generation.

'Ecstasy' (or 'Ecstasy: 3 Tales of Chemical Romance') is a book comprised of three short stories all centring around love/sex/relationships/romance whilst high on Ecstasy. I really enjoyed the first two stories in this collection, but wasn't such a fan of the third. Which is a shame, as that was the Leggi tutto
You all know how I feel about Welsh. His crass, brazen stories filled with shock, drugs, and all kinds of abuse, absolutely thrill and delight me. Every new release of his I will devour rather than savour, subsequently churning out reviews filled with crazed praise and fangirl ramblings. This time I Leggi tutto
Really disturbing, but I remember this as a great read nonetheless. Welsh has the ability to make the hair stand up on the back of your neck with deceptively simple descriptions of wholly credible human callousness and abuse, peppered with characters that you know you met at some party or other, lat Leggi tutto
By far, the most twisted book I've ever read.
Dirty, disgusting, and disturbingly amusing.
I'd heard this collection of "three tales of chemical imbalance" weren't so good, so it was a pleasant surprise to find myself quite enjoying them all. Within each of the three "stories" there are multiple plot lines running with entertaining characters abounding. A listing of the subtitle of each s Leggi tutto
Welsh excels at that kind of Clockwork-Orangian art of endearing the reader to shitty people. In these three stories--all loosely bound together only by the characters' frequent use of the titular drug--we meet an obese romance writer and her filthy husband, a soccer hooligan seduced by an armless w Leggi tutto
You know how you look away when watching a gruesome movie to be spared the most horrible scene? Ever done that when reading a gruesome book? This book made me look away. And then, because you can't help it, you continue reading...
Ecstasy is a collection of three short love stories by Irvine Welsh. Not love stories in the classical sense, more love stories for the modern, ecstasy fuelled, party age. The kind of love stories where the characters are heavily flawed and you aren't sure if their love will last, or even if they we Leggi tutto
