Irvine Welsh

in conversation with John Niven

Twenty-one years after the publication of his seminal novel Trainspotting defined the drug scene for a generation, Irvine Welsh’s latest book, The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins, turns his raw and uncompromising style to two great obsessions of our time: how we look and where we live. Hear him talk with novelist John Niven about the genesis of his dark and subversive tale, in which an aggressive, foulmouthed personal trainer and an obsessive, manipulative client play out one of the most bizarre, sado-masochistic folies à deux in contemporary fiction.
