Praise

Praise for A DECENT RIDE:

“A case can be made that Irvine Welsh is the most outrageous novelist now at large in the English-speaking world.”
The Washington Post
 
“A hilarious, gleefully offensive book, featuring necrophilia, incest, and a character named Ronald Checker, a rich reality TV host who might remind readers of a certain Republican presidential candidate.”
Men’s Journal
 
“Welsh renders [A DECENT RIDE] with the same comedic precision and messy obscenity that he’s been refining since Trainspotting.”
NPR.org
 
“The 10th novel by this Scottish transplant to Lake View is as crass as you would expect from the man who wrote Trainspotting.”
Chicago Magazine
 
“This Scottish picaresque is bawdy, profane, funny, tragic, farcical, kindhearted, exuberant, and disgusting in almost equal measure … Great entertainment.”
Booklist
 
“Welsh’s funniest, filthiest novel yet.”
Library Journal

“As always, Welsh takes things from zero to sixty in his latest novel … not for the squeamish, prudish, or faint of heart.”
Kirkus Reviews
