about

The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins taps into two great obsessions of our time, personal training regimes and real estate -- how we look and where we live -- and tells a story so subversive and dark it blacks out the Florida sun.
   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. The solitary eye-witness is the depressed and overweight Lena Sorensen, who becomes obsessed with Lucy and signs up as her client – though she seems more interested in the trainer’s body than her own. When the two women find themselves more closely aligned, and can’t stop thinking about the sex lives of Siamese twins, the real problems start...
   In the aggressive, foul-mouthed trainer, Lucy Brennan, and the needy, manipulative Lena Sorensen, Irvine Welsh has created two of his most memorable female protagonists, and one of the most bizarre, sado-masochistic folies à deux in contemporary fiction. Featuring murder, depravity and revenge – and enormous amounts of food and sex – 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.

IRVINE WELSH is the author of nine previous novels and four books of shorter fiction. He currently lives in Chicago.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Irvine Welsh at the top of his game Dark, clever, and with the tight prose and clever plotting that is Irving Welsh's hallmark. Yup it pulls no punches, yes it's nasty in part but it keeps you reading till the end and the money shot is satisfying
