Meet author Irvine Welsh

Books and Books. Coral Gables May 8th, 2007On Tuesday May 8th, 2007 at 8:00 p.m. there will be a reading and discussion at Books and Books Coral Gables with author Irvine Welsh, about his most recent book The Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs. This is the story of two men locked in a war of wills that threatens their very existence. Troubled restaurant inspector Danny Skinner is on a quest to find the mysterious father his mother will not identify. Unraveling this hidden information is the key to understanding the crippling compulsions that threaten to wreck his young life. His ensuing journey takes him from the festival city of Edinburgh to the foodie city of San Francisco. But the hard-drinking, womanizing Skinner has a strange nemesis in the form of mild-mannered fellow inspector Brian Kibby. It is Skinner’s unfathomable, obsessive hatred of Kibby that takes over everything, threatening to destroy not only Skinner and his mission but also those he loves most dearly. When Kibby contracts a horrific, undiagnosable illness, Skinner understands that his destiny is inextricably bound to that of his hated rival, and he is faced with a terrible dilemma. Irvine Welsh is the author of Trainspotting, The Acid House, Marabou Stark Nightmares, Ecstasy, Filth, Glue, Porno, and his most recent play, Babylon Heights, co-authored with Dean Cavanagh. Welsh lives in Dublin. For more information, please call: 305.442.4408
