Trainspotting: The First Day of the Edinburgh Festival.

- Yes. One of the (china) dolls hands us a piece ay paper wi Brecht: The
Caucasian Chalk Circle by Nottingham University Theatre Group
on it.
Doubtless a collection of zit-encrusted, squeaky-voiced wankers playing oot a
miserable pretenstion tae the arts before graduating to work in the power
stations which give the local children leukemia or investment consultancies
which shut doon factories, throwing people into poverty and despair.

My survey of world literature has finally taken me to Leith. Trainspotting is definately worth a read, good but in places very nasty stuff. Suspect that Irvine Welsh is a one book novelist but its a giant.

Funny as well. Reminds me of the 80s, not that I was any where near any of this at the time.
