Irvine Welsh - 'Oh me, Oh My'.
Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh
presented his latest book 'The Sex Lives of
Siamese Twins' on the Liverpool literary
festival 'Writing on the Wall', In 'The Sex Lives
of Siamese Twins', Irvine Welsh has created
two of his most memorable female
protagonists. The book taps into two great
obsessions of our time – how we look and
where we live – and tells a story so
subversive and dark it blacks out the Florida

'Choose Life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Choose a family.
Choose a fucking big television, choose washing machines, cars,
compact disc players and electrical tin openers. Choose good
health, low cholesterol, and dental insurance. Choose fixed
interest mortage repayments. Choose a starter home. Choose your friends.
Choose leisurewear and matching luggage. Choose a
three-piece suite on hire purchase in a range of fucking fabrics.
Choose DIY and wondering who the fuck you are on a Sunday morning.
Choose sitting on that couch watching mind-numbing, spirit-crushing
game shows, stuffing fucking junk food into your mouth. Choose
rotting away at the end of it all, pishing your last in a miserable
home, nothing more than an embarrassment to the selfish, fucked up
brats you spawned to replace yourself.
Choose your future.
