Hilarious, shocking and hugely entertaining, Reheated Cabbage has all the classic Irvine Welsh ingredients.

In these pages you can enjoy Christmas dinner with Begbie, and see how warmly Franco greets his sister's boyfriend and the news of their engagement. You will discover, in 'The Rosewell Incident', how aliens addicted to Embassy Regal have Midlothian under surveillance, and plan to install the local casuals as the new governors of Planet Earth. You will not be surprised to read that a televised Hibs vs. Hearts game might matter more to one character than the life of his wife, or that two guys fighting over a beautiful girl might agree -- on reflection, and after a few pills and many pints of lager -- that their friendship is actually more important. And you will be delighted to welcome back 'Juice' Terry Lawson, and to watch what happens when he meets his old nemesis, retired schoolmaster Albert Black, under the strobe-lights of a Miami Beach nightclub.

IRVINE WELSH is the author of 10 previous works of fiction, most recently Crime. He currently lives in Dublin.

Editorial Reviews

"Page for page, this is a hugely entertaining book... The stories combine sly humour with the tang of lived experience. It makes for a terrific collection, showcasing a writer who... has blossomed into one of the most distinctive, and distinguished, observers of British life."--Sunday Telegraph"It's good to be brought back to Welsh's original hellfire." --Observer"A total hoot to read. The first thing that strikes you about much of the material here is the amazing energy of Welsh's writing." --Independent on Sunday"Welsh's work remains at once moving, repellent and worryingly funny." --TLS
