Welsh introduced readers to a crew of drug-addled miscreants in Trainspotting and saw them into the world of adult film in Porno. More misbehavior and grungy Scots dialogue is promised in his latest, Skagboys, which takes place before the action of Trainspotting, as Mark Renton and his pals fall onto hard times.
