Irvine Welsh –The Blade Artist

5th Apr 2016  •  6:30PM – 7:30PM  •  Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

Irvine Welsh will be at Aye Write to re-introduce us to Trainspotting’s most infamous and terrifying character, Francis Begbie in his new novel, The Blade Artist.

Can it really be twenty years since Trainspotting? Yes indeed and just as the film of the sequel begins shooting Irvine Welsh will be here to re-introduce us to its most infamous and terrifying character, Francis Begbie in The Blade Artist. On the surface Begbie seems to have found himself, working as a sculptor in California but his dark past isn’t buried very deep and a trip home for the funeral of a murdered son he barely knew starts to go very bad, very quickly. This ultra-violent but curiously redemptive new novel is both elegant and electrifying.
