If you’ve read ‘Trainspotting’, ‘Porno’, ‘Skagboys’ and enjoyed Begbie’s brief reappearance in ‘He Ain’t Lager’ in 2013, you’ll be as excited as we are for Irvine’s next novel…
Described by Welsh as “grim, nasty and fun”, The Blade Artist sees Francis Begbie slinking out of the shadows and back under the literary spotlight to regain his status as one of the most terrifying hardmen in the world of cult fiction.
So on April 7th forget eating your words, because we are dishing up delicious eats alongside some of the finest writers and artists.
Join us at York Hall for an evening of lyrics, literature and performance.
Be prepared for a lot of interactive laughs with cult wordsmith Irvine Welsh (in the past he has hosted BBQs and been in the Book Slam boxing ring), discover poetry & fiction from John Niven and Jenni Fagan, grab a new read from Newham Books and loosen up with live music.
Tickets are available here from Book Slam.
