I’m experimenting with integrating links into this site. The last one didn’t seem to work well. Perhaps it has something to do with the ipad I used last time. ..
I’ll try again. Ideally, this link will take you to an ad for Skagboys, Welsh’s new novel. If you watch closely and pay attention to the juxtapositions of text, image and sound, you will detect one of Welsh’s recurring themes: the soul-crushing exsistence of the working poor, especially in the Thatcher era United Kingdom. Welsh is, after all, a laureate or Scottish low life.
