These three stories all revolving around ecstasy were the darkest of Welsh's short stories I've read to date. 'Lorraine Goes to Livingstone' tells of a romantic novelist determined to get revenge on her husband with a heavy dose of beastiality and necrophilia thrown in for good measure. 'Fortune's Always Hiding' is another story of revenge, this time seeking out the man responsible for crippling Samantha. 'The Undefeated' is the lightest of the trio, following two polar opposite lives and their drug habits.

Without a doubt the most macabre collection I've read and very reminiscent of Trainspotting.
