"A pure writer, producing staggering feats of storytelling... The
skill of a master" * Independent *
"Welsh writes with a skill, wit and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing to have happened to British writing for decades" * Sunday Times *
"Urgent, violent, bleakly funny prose" -- Nick Hornby * Times literary Supplement *
"Welsh's world is spiky, trashy and brutal. It is also brilliant, hilarious and infused with a kind of punkish morality" * Sunday Express *
"The poet laureate of the chemical generation" * Face *
