T2 Trainspotting on the Underground

T2 Trainspotting, by Irvine Welsh

Sick Boy, Begbie, Renton and Spud spent Friday evening travelling the London Underground with the Books on the Underground Book Fairies on their first ever evening campaign this week! Copies of T2 Trainspotting were hidden on the Tube for lucky finders to celebrate the release of the film.

About T2 Trainspotting

Years on from Trainspotting Sick Boy is back in Edinburgh after a long spell in London.

Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father and businessman, Sick Boy taps into an opportunity which to him represents one last throw of the dice. However, to realise his ambitions within the Adult industries, Sick Boy must team up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton.

Still scheming, still scamming, Sick Boy and Renton soon find out that they have unresolved issues to address concerning the unhinged Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other. T2 Trainspotting was previously published as Porno.

About Irvine Welsh

Irvine Welsh was born in the great city of Edinburgh, Scotland. London called in the late seventies and he tried to catch up on some of education he’d missed on while daydreaming about more interesting things, as enjoyed the London punk scene.

When Trainspotting was published in 1993 Irvine Welsh shot to fame. Welsh’s novel received as many good reviews as ones swathed in disgust and outrage – establishing a tradition that continues to this day. In August 1995, Irvine Welsh gave up his day job.

His first novel has now sold almost 1 million copies in the UK alone and is a worldwide phenomenon. Books such as Glue, Porno and recent The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs have seen him increase his profile in America and Canada. He has recently branched into film and is a partner in two film production companies.
