Marabou Stork Nightmares

Marabou Stork Nightmares

Irvine Welsh

"For somebody who will get excessive on language, this ebook is a stupendous trip...a genuine journey de force."―Madison Smartt Bell, Spin

The acclaimed writer of the cult classics Trainspotting and The Acid House, Irvine Welsh has been hailed as "the smartest thing that has occurred to British writing in a decade" (London Sunday Times). This audacious novel is a superb (and literal) head journey of a booklet that brings us into the wildly lively, albeit coma-beset, brain of Roy Strang, whose hallucinatory quest to get rid of the evil predator/scavenger marabou stork retains being interrupted by way of grisly stories of the social and relatives disorder that introduced him to this country. it's the type of lethally humorous cocktail of pathos, violence, and outrageous hilarity that in simple terms Irvine Welsh can pull off.
