Stoke Newington Literary Festival 2013: Irvine Welsh
Go along and celebrate year four of this eclectic, amusing, inspiring, sometimes audacious and always brilliant festival, which was set up to celebrate the area's radical thinking and literary heritage.
Born in 1961 in Muirhouse, Edinburgh he migrated to London to join the punk scene before returning to Scotland in the 80's. His first published book was a collection of short stories entitled 'The Acid House'. That was followed by 'Trainspotting' which launched his career and earned him a booker nomination. His subsequent works: 'Ecstasy', 'Filth' and 'Glue' have all recieved similar acclaim. His latest book called 'Porno', revisits the characters of 'Trainspotting'.
