In the fag-end of his youth, Simon 'Sick Boy' Williamson is back in his native 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. To enable this scam to work out, Sick Boy needs bedfellows. A desirable one may be the lovely Nicola Fuller-Smith, a young student with enough ambition, ego and troubles to rival his own. However, to realize his dream of directing and producing a pornographic movie, Sick Boy gets teamed up with old pal and fellow exile Mark Renton and a motley crew that includes the city's favourite ex-aerated-water-salesman, 'Juice' Terry Lawson. In the world of Porno, however, nothing is straightforward, as Sick Boy and Renton find out that they have unresolved issues to address, concerning the increasingly unhinged Frank Begbie, the troubled, drug-addled Spud, and, most of all, with each other. Porno is a novel about the Trainspotting crew ten years further down the line: still scheming, still scamming, still trying to fight for the first-class seats as the locomotive careers at high speed towards the buffers.

Reviews

After his star rose in the mid 1990s, Irvine Welsh's novels, while dividing critics, have garnered much attention, but his latest is a publisher's wet dream: Porno is the sequel to Trainspotting. No manuscript is currently available but the book will see Sick Boy return to Edinburgh after an unsuccessful period in 'business' (read pimp and hustler) in London. Back home, he's got a new plan to make money which involves the production of a porn film. Cue the introduction of Nicola Fuller-Smith, the book's very own Sick Girl and object of his desire, as well as the reintroduction of Renton, the increasingly unhinged Begbie and a still drug-addled Spud. A guaranteed success and a long-term one as the team behind the Trainspotting movie are likely to adapt this sequel.
