Porno (Norton Paperback) Paperback (496 pages) by Irvine Welsh (Irvine Welsh) The Train spotting lads are back...and in worse shape than ever. In the last gasp of youth, Simon "Sick Boy" Williamson is back in Edinburgh. He taps into one last great scam: directing and producing a porn film. To make it work, he needs bedfellows: the lovely Nikki Fuller-Smith, a student with ambition, ego, and troubles to rival his own; old pal Mark Renton; and a motley crew that includes the neighborhood's favorite ex-beverage salesman, "Juice" Terry. In the world of Porno, however, even the cons are conned. Sick Boy and Renton jockey for top dog. The out-of-jail and in-for-revenge Begbie is on the loose. But it's the hapless, drug-addled Spud who may be spreading the most trouble. Porno is a novel about the Train spotting crew ten years further down the line: still scheming, still scamming, still fighting for the first-class seats as the train careens at high velocity with derailment looming around the next corner.

As we ride along in Juice's cab through the depraved streets of Edinburgh, we encounter a series of charmingly filthy characters, each of whom present their own unique challenges. Has he finally met his match in Hurricane ‘Bawbag’? Can he discover the fate of the beautiful Jinty Magdalen and keep her idiot-savant lover, Wee Jonty, out of prison? Will he find out the real motives of the reality-TV star, Ronald Checker? And, crucially, will Juice be able to negotiate life after a terrible event robs him of his sexual virility, and can a new fascination for the game of golf help him to live without a decent ride? Buckle your seatbelts and prepare for one unforgettable trip.
