Una serie di racconti di Irvine Welsh composti nell’arco di un decennio, a partire dai primi anni Novanta, e usciti all’epoca in antologie e pubblicazioni ormai quasi introvabili. Cinici o indifesi di fronte alla spudorata incommensurabilità del mondo, i protagonisti di queste storie sono sempre animati da una scrittura fresca e ispirata, carica di quell’irresistibile forza esilarante che redime ogni peccato nell’universo amaro dell’autore di Trainspotting.

Tutta colpa di Irvine? L’ipotesi più benevola è che si tratti di una raccolta male assemblata e un po’ raffazzonata, come sembra ammettere lo stesso autore nei “ringraziamenti” di coda, mettendo insieme storie per lo più già edite qua e là nel secolo scorso in diverse riviste e contesti. Si tratta nel Leggi tutto
Welsh is back. It's time for me to blather aboot this eminently readable collection of Welsh's short stories, spanning from 1994-2000. And what a cracker it is, too. Written in Welsh's typical vernacular, complete with his idiosyncratic sense of spelling and grammar, Reheated Cabbage captures the ess Leggi tutto
This book was great! I've become a huge fan of Welsh and I really enjoyed these new/old stories involving various characters in his universe. The novella at the end, I am Miami, is like a sequel to both Porno and Glue. Juice Terry is one of Welsh's best characters and I found this new adventure of h Leggi tutto
I really like this writer a lot. He has the right mixture of out and out grossness and also is deceptively deep in his subject matter/plots. I will go out of my way to read what he writes in the future.
A reeking heap of a treasure.
ridiculous and super fun. I read the whole thing on a plane trip from Durham to San Diego (layover, Kansas City). I didn't even realize the christmas dinner story was about begbie, but of COURSE it was. i think i am miami was my favorite. the whole collection starts off with a real bang with the fau Leggi tutto
"Reheated Cabbage" collects a handful of short stories that Welsh has published elsewhere over the past few years, and like any such anthology there is variation in the quality and cohesion of the book as a whole. There are a couple of throwaway stories and a really silly (yet still kind of amusing) Leggi tutto
I am a committed Irvine Welsh fan. I think what he does with the Scottish dialect is incredibly creative. I have never read another author who I could so clearly hear while I am reading. It is a pretty fun experience. Plus, he is very funny, in an incredibly dark way. The other thing he does which I Leggi tutto
It sometimes happens that story collections turn out to be a bit lumpy in the sense that the pieces not always complement each other smoothly. This is one of those. However, each story on its own is great, especially the first – what a masterpiece! I have never laughed so much about such a tragic ev Leggi tutto
