    Book of the Week



We are delighted to announce that we have the author of one of the most iconic novels of the 20th Century, Trainspotting, at our festival this May. 
Irvine Welsh is coming to Liverpool as part of his latest book launch tour of 'The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins'. The night will be hosted by novelist, Kevin Sampson with a DJ set from lead singer of The Farm, Peter Hooton.
IRVINE WELSH was born in Edinburgh, and first came to public attention with his debut novel Trainspotting (1993), which was quickly adapted for stage and screen, with great success. His other novels include Filth (1998), Glue (2001), and, most recently, Skagboys (2012), and he has written many short stories and screenplays.

The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins. 

When Lucy Brennan, a Miami Beach personal-fitness trainer, disarms a gunman chasing two frightened homeless men, the police and the breaking-news cameras are not far behind and, within hours, Lucy is a media hero. 
Irvine Welsh has created two of his most memorable female protagonists. The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins taps into two great obsessions of our time – how we look and where we live – and tells a story so subversive and dark it blacks out the Florida sun.
