Glue by Irvine Welsh


By Irvine Welsh

Glue is not, as you would assume, about solvent abuse. It refers to the 'bond' that unite four boys growing up in the slums of Edinburgh. It is written almost entirely in an Edinburgh dialect and can be a bit difficult to read. If you loved Trainspotting then you will love this but you may also feel that it is just more of the same from Welsh.
