Notes:
Mark Renton has it all, but there's no room for him in the 1980s. Thatcher's government is destroying working-class communities across Britian, and the post-war certainties of full employment, educational opportunity and a welfare state are gone. When his family starts to fracture, the only way out is heroin.
Mark Renton has it all: he's good-looking with a place at university. But there's no room for him in the 1980s. Thatcher's government is destroying working-class communities across Britain. When his family starts to fracture, Mark's life swings out of control and he succumbs to the defeatism which has taken hold in Edinburgh's grimmer areas.
"One of the most significant writers in Britain. He writes with style, imagination, wit and force." "--Times Literary Supplement" " " "The voice of punk, grown up, grown wiser and grown eloquent." "--The Times".
