By Irvine Welsh
An epic novel in regards to the bonds of friendship from the writer of Trainspotting.
The tale of 4 boys growing to be up within the Edinburgh initiatives, Glue is ready the loyalties, the reviews, and the secrets and techniques that carry associates jointly via 3 many years. the men turn into males: Juice Terry, the work-shy fanny-merchant, with corkscrew curls and sticky hands; Billy the boxer, pushed, managed, taking part in to his strengths; Carl, the Milky Bar child, drifting alongside to his personal soundtrack; and the doomed Gally, tremendously thin-skinned and at risk of disaster at each turn.
We keep on with their lives from the seventies into the hot century—from punk to techno, from pace to E—as they fight with the conditioning of sophistication and tradition, peer strain, and their parents’ hopes that perhaps their sons will do larger than they did. What binds the 4 of them is the friendship shaped by way of the initiatives, their tuition, and their ambition to flee from either. Their loyalty is fused in highway morality: again up your friends, don’t hit ladies, and, most crucial, by no means snitch—on anyone.
Glue has the Irvine Welsh trademarks—crackling discussion, scabrous set items, and black, black humor—but it's also a grown-up ebook approximately growing to be up, in regards to the approach we are living our lives, and what occurs to us while issues turn into unstuck.
