This is an auction for THE SEX LIVES OF SIAMESE TWINS by Irvine Welsh.

"A reliably maniacal spin on the Pygmalion tale."
—Publishers Weekly (US)

“Welsh never fails to shock. His depiction of the south Florida landscape evokes a sense of sun-soaked desperation as bleak as any Edinburgh heroin den. The excitement of Welsh’s writing derives from the perverse glee he takes in our lowest obsessions. His best effects are comic, and rely on sharp turns and a profane finish. An unruly sprawl it may be, but The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins is, nevertheless, a compulsive read.”
—Financial Times (UK)

“Welsh, whose ear for tasty dialogue has always been his forte, has never written with greater verve. Call it fast food, or a banquet of healthy cautionary wholegrain, this is a novel packed with energy. Welsh’s fans will love its excess of sprinkled expletives, and its discipline, its ambition. Those new to his work will find perseverance has its reward.”
—The Scotsman

“No one can write about a sociopath in love with so much heart… not only cleverly conceived but genuinely, hauntingly, transgressive.”
—The Guardian (UK)

“This knockabout caper of Miami vice is a riot of sex and exercise.”
—The Observer (UK)

“From that lurid title onwards this is a visceral romp of a novel, a manic endorphin rush of a read that nevertheless also manages to sneak in some serious commentary on the state of American society, putting this book right up there with the best of Irvine Welsh’s work… At heart this is a book about the failed American dream.”
—Independent on Sunday (UK)
