Never-collected tales, including outrageous early stories from the Trainspotting years, plus a raucous new novella.

Reheated Cabbage gathers stories showcasing Irvine Welshs trademark skills: vaulting imagination, brilliant vernacular ear, scabrous humor, and the ability to create some of the most memorable characters in contemporary fiction. You can enjoy Christmas dinner with Begbie at his Mas and see how he greets his sisters boyfriend and news of their engagement. Youll discover in The Rosewell Incident why aliens speak hardcore Scots English and plan to put Midlothian roughs in charge of the planet. And youll be delighted to welcome back Juice Terry Lawson and now internationally famous DJ Carl Ewart, and watch them as they meet an old nemesis, retired schoolmaster Albert Black, under the strobe lights of a Miami Beach nightclub. These stories, most first published in small magazines and out-of-print anthologies, are all wildly offbeat and will delight both fans of and newcomers to Welshs world.
