The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins

by Irvine Welsh

A chance meeting. A violent encounter. Two people brought together. A personal trainer body-fascist and an overweight sculptor. A difficult personal relationship, set to the background of American daytime TV. A story of competition, bondage, murder, sexual violence and deeply scarred psyches coming to terms with the world, and overbearing impossible parents. And the sex lives of conjoined Siamese twins is merely peripheral.

- No. We can't not talk about it. Because those giant women didn't talk about it. They got fat, got depressed, depowered, addicted to sugar and comfort-eating to spike their mood up, and went into free fall. They will always be mutants. Even if they lose weight they will carry obscene scars where they've had folds of skin removed, or have to fill that empty parcel of skin with megamuscle, like the older fatties you see on The Biggest Loser. Not you. You can still look normal again. You're young. You've got good skin.
