Summary
  • "This series offers new insights into Scottish authors, periods and topics drawing on contemporary critical approaches
  • The subcultural enfant terrible of devolutionary protest and rebellion, Irvine Welsh is now widely acknowledged as the founding father of a whole new tradition in post-devolation Scottish writing. The unprecedented worldwide success of Trainspotting, magnified by Danny Boyle's iconic film adaptation, revolutionised Scottish culture and radically remoulded the country's self-image, Although Welsh's career is very much an ongoing phenomenon, his influence on contemporary Scottish literary history is already indisputable
  • The Companion provides a thorough, up-to-date and critical evaluation of Welsh's work. New innovative readings address questions of class, subculture and drug use, nationhood, gender and narrative experimentation with reference to broader developments-such as devolution and globalisation--within contemporary Scottish, British and world culture.
