The author became internationally renowned with "Trainspotting" and has lost none of his bite. An absolute "must-have" title for Irvine Welsh collectors. This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed and inscribed in blue pen on the title page by Irvine Welsh. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page.
