CHOOSE LIFE, CHOOSE TRAINSPOTTING - the grand finale of the Trainspotting series
German text: Thorsten Nagelschmidt

With " Dead Men’s Trousers" Irvine Welsh closes the "Trainspotting" series. The author will read from the other parts with Thorsten Nagelschmidt from the new novel anyway.

Professionally, things are not going too badly for Mark Renton. As a manager of successful DJs, he travels around the world. The coal is right. But frequent flying, soulless hotel rooms and fleeting relationships take their toll. And Mark is tired. A chance encounter with his former companion Franco Begbie pulls him out of his rut. Damn it, life has more to offer! Mark soon finds himself in a world that he had long believed behind him: in the dirty streets of a contemptible Scottish town. Life looks less rosy there for two other old friends. While Sick Boy is still somewhat afloat with an escort service, Spud literally lives on the street and slides into the dark world of illegal organ trafficking. Confused, angry, driven by their old addictions and inner demons, the four old friends in Edinburgh head for each other again. The first reunion is warm, but it will not stop there.
