T2 Trainspotting Book Description:

Now a major film directed by Danny Boyle reuniting the cast of Trainspotting Years on from Trainspotting Sick Boy is back in Edinburgh after a long spell in London. Having failed spectacularly as a hustler, pimp, husband, father and businessman, Sick Boy taps into an opportunity which to him represents one last throw of the dice. However, to realise his ambitions within the Adult industries, Sick Boy must team up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton. Still scheming, still scamming, Sick Boy and Renton soon find out that they have unresolved issues to address concerning the unhinged Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, but, most of all, with each other. T2 Trainspotting was previously published as Porno.

Trainspotting Book Description:

Die volle Ladung Leben - ein Klassiker der Underground-Literatur Mietskasernen, Arbeitslosigkeit, miese Pubs, viel Alkohol und jede Menge Drogen: das ist der Alltag in Leith, einem heruntergekommenen Vorort von Edinburgh. Das ist auch der Alltag von Renton, Spud, Begbie, Sick Boy und Dianne, einer Clique von jugendlichen Aussenseitern, in deren Leben sich fast alles um Drogen dreht. Wer kein Junkie ist, wird bald einer werden oder war einer oder wird bald wieder einer sein. Neben Stuff, Rausch, Entzug, Sex, Frust und Gewalt gibt es aber auch noch die Musik. Und wenn diese Anti-Helden schon alle den Blues haben, so doch zumindest mit 160 beats per minute. Irvine Welsh, geboren 1958 in Leith bei Edinburgh, schreibt Romane und Kurzgeschichten, und gilt als einer der wichtigsten Autoren Grossbritanniens. Sein Debütroman Trainspotting machte ihn international bekannt und wurde mit Ewan McGregor in der Hauptrolle verfilmt. Welsh lebt in Chicago.

Trainspotting Book Description:

In 1996 Trainspotting was the biggest thing in British culture. Brilliantly and aggressively marketed, it crossed into the mainstream despite being a black comedy set against the backdrop of heroin addiction in Edinburgh. Produced by Andrew Macdonald, scripted by John Hodge and directed by Danny Boyle, the team behind Shallow Grave (1994), Trainspotting was an adaptation of Irvine Welsh's barbed novel of the same title. The film is crucial for understanding British culture in the context of devolution and the rise of 'Cool Britannia'. Murray Smith unpicks the processes that led to Trainspotting's enormous success. He isolates various factors – the film's eclectic soundtrack, its depiction of Scottish identity, its attitude to deprivation, drugs and violence, its traffic with American cultural forms, its synthesis of realist and fantastic elements, and its complicated relationship to 'heritage' – that make Trainspotting such a vivid document of its time. Although it heralded a false dawn for British film-making,Trainspotting is, Smith concludes, both authentically vernacular and yet transnational in its influences and ambitions. In his afterword to this new edition, Murray Smith reflects on the original film 25 years after its release, and its 2017 sequel T2: Trainspotting also directed by Boyle. Smith also considers Danny Boyle's subsequent directorial career, with highlights including Slumdog Millionaire (2008) and the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony.

Britpop Cinema Book Description:

The Britpop movement of the mid-1990s defined a generation, and the films were just as exciting as the music. Beginning with Shallow Grave, hitting its stride with Trainspotting, and going global with The Full Monty, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Shaun of the Dead, and This Is England, Britpop cinema pushed boundaries, paid Hollywood no heed, and placed the United Kingdom all too briefly at the centre of the movie universe. Featuring exclusive interviews with key players such as Simon Pegg, Irvine Welsh, Michael Winterbottom and Edgar Wright, Britpop Cinema combines eyewitness accounts, close analysis and social history to celebrate a golden age for UK film.

From Trocchi to Trainspotting Scottish Critical Theory Since 1960 Book Description:

This book charts the course of Scottish Critical Theory since the 1960s. It provocatively argues that 'French' critical-theoretical ideas have developed in tandem with Scottish writing during this period. Its themes can be read as a breakdown in Scottish Enlightenment thinking after empire - precisely the process which permitted the rise of 'theory'.The book places within a wider theoretical context writers such as Muriel Spark, Edwin Morgan, Ian Hamilton Finlay, James Kelman, Alexander Trocchi, Janice Galloway, Alan Warner and Irvine Welsh, as well as more recent work by Alan Riach and Pat Kane, who can be seen to take the 'post-Enlightenment' narrative forward. In doing so, it draws on the work of the Scottish thinkers John Macmurray and R.D. Laing as well as the continental philosophers Gilles Deleuze and Paul Virilio.
