Un pugno di ragazzi a Edimburgo e dintorni: il sesso, lo sballo, la rabbia, il vuoto delle giornate. Sono i dannati di un modernissimo inferno "chimico", con la loro vita sfilacciata e senza scampo. Alla ricerca di un riscatto, di un senso da dare alla propria esistenza - che non sia il vicolo cieco fatto di casa, famiglia e impiego ordinario - trovano nella droga e nella violenza l'unica risposta possibile. Sboccato, indiavolato, travolgente: l'esordio di un talento letterario, il romanzo shock che ha fatto epoca e dato voce a una nuova generazione.
