About the book

Ten years on from Trainspotting Sick Boy is back in Edinburgh after a long spell in London. Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father and businessman, Sick Boy taps into an opportunity which to him represents one last throw of the dice. However, to realise his dream of directing and producing a pornographic movie, Sick Boy must team up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton. In the world of Porno, though, nothing is straightforward, as Sick Boy and Renton find out that they have unresolved issues to address concerning the increasingly unhinged Frank Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other.

About the Author

Irvine Welsh

Irvin Welsh is a Scottish novelist, playwright and short story writer. His novel Trainspotting was made into a film of the same name. His work is characterised by a raw Scots dialect and brutal depiction of Edinburgh life. He has also written plays and screenplays, and directed several short films.


Welsh's tenth novel, released in April 2016, is titled The Blade Artist, and centres around a seemingly rehabilitated Trainspotting character Francis Begbie now living in California with a wife and children. It was shortlisted for the Fiction Book of the Year at the Saltire Literary Awards 2016.


A sequel to The Blade Artist, entitled Dead Men's Trousers, was released on 29 March 2018, and sees fellow Transporting characters Mark Renton, Sick Boy and Spud reuniting with Francis Begbie.
