9780224102179: A Decent Ride

How important is a decent ride?
     A rampaging force of nature is wreaking havoc on the streets of Edinburgh, but has top shagger, drug-dealer, gonzo-porn-star and taxi-driver, 'Juice' Terry Lawson, finally met his match in Hurricane 'Bawbag'? Can Terry discover the fate of the missing beauty, Jinty Magdalen, and keep her idiot savant lover, the man-child Wee Jonty, out of prison? Will he find out the real motives of unscrupulous American businessman and reality-TV star, Ronald Checker? And, crucially, will Terry be able to negotiate life after a terrible event robs him of his sexual virility, and can a new fascination for the game of golf help him to live without... A DECENT RIDE?
     A Decent Ride sees Irvine Welsh back on home turf, leaving us in the capable hands of one of his most compelling and popular characters, 'Juice' Terry Lawson, and introducing another bound for cult status, Wee Jonty MacKay: a man with the genitals and brain of a donkey. 
     In his funniest, filthiest book yet, Irvine Welsh celebrates an un-reconstructed misogynist hustler -- a central character who is shameless but also, oddly, decent -- and finds new ways of making wild comedy out of fantastically dark material, taking on some of the last taboos. So fasten your seatbelts, because this is one ride that could certainly get a little bumpy.

Review:

Praise for A DECENT RIDE:

“A case can be made that Irvine Welsh is the most outrageous novelist now at work 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
