IRVINE WELSH SIGNING AT HIGHLAND INN: “After you sign it, could you maybe vomit on it and rub the vomit around with the pen?”


Irvine Welsh, the Scottish author whose 1993 novel, Trainspotting, made poverty, heroin addiction and infanticide fun again, spoke to an adoring audience at the ballroom of the Highland Inn Saturday night. Hosted by A Cappella Books and local lit-mag the Chattahoochee Review, Welsh read three chapters of his most recent novel, The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs, including one with a sex scene so vile it makes the toilet scene in Trainspotting seem airy and whimsical by comparison.
