We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. AbeBooks has millions of books. We've listed similar copies below.

Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 276 pages. Published in 1996. The author's fourth novel. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Irvine Welsh's "Ecstasy". Reaffirms his unique reputation as the "Poet Laureate of the Chemical Generation". A stunning production by Jonathan Cape: Brilliant DJ by Tracey Winwood of a dark-blue man's face against bright-yellow background, mouth open with an "e"-shaped pill between his teeth. 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. The recipient is named. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the most important and most influential living writers. A flawless copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER IRVINE WELSH TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0224043455. Bookseller Inventory #

About this title:

Synopsis: A collection of three novels which examine the absurdity and thrills of modern life: A necrophiliac and a faithful wife get what they deserve; the victim of a birth control drug gets terrible revenge; and love spreads without the help of chemical ecstasy.

Review: "A pure writer, producing staggering feats of storytelling... The skill of a master" (Independent)

"Welsh writes with a skill, wit and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing to have happened to British writing for decades" (Sunday Times)

"Urgent, violent, bleakly funny" (Nick Hornby)

"Welsh's world is spiky, trashy and brutal. It is also brilliant, hilarious and infused with a kind of punkish morality" (Sunday Express)

"The poet laureate of the chemical generation" (The Face)
