Irvine Welsh – Video Link Up at Tolbooth
Thursday 15th September from 10:30 pm – 11:30 pm Video Link Up, Tolbooth, Stirling
An original. A reluctant national treasure. Irvine Welsh stamped his unique brand of storytelling across the consciousness of a nation and changed the face of British fiction with the iconic and ground-breaking Trainspotting. His 2008 book Crime, the first to feature troubled detective Ray Lennox, was recently adapted for television starring Dougray Scott. *Irvine joins us digitally from Miami to discuss the series and his new Lennox novel The Long Knives in which the DI fights to unravel the truth behind an MP’s murder while battling his own demons and drug addiction. Irvine will be interviewed by writer and TV presenter James Crawford. Sponsored by the Open University in Scotland.
