I was really looking forward to Skagboys, which falls clearly into the first category.

I was really looking forward to Skagboys, which falls clearly into the first category. The prequel to Trainspotting, it is billed – like most of his novels – as his best since then. It begins in 1984, and it follows Renton, Sick Boy and Spud as they become heroin addicts, and Begbie as he graduates from Leith bully to fully-fledged Edinburgh-wide psycho. Spud is laid off from his job as a removals man. Renton finds himself doing de-skilled carpentry work for "the kind ay small businessman Thatcher loves; a grasping, spiritually dead, scab-minded cunt".
