@IrvineWelsh My five-year-old grandson has a double-barrelled name, his parents aren't married and so he has both their surnames. Both situations seem to be the fashion these days.Kevin Chatfield 🏴 @KevinChatfield • 21 Feb 21:14 GMT
@IrvineWelsh As second language English speaker I read this at about 15 after finding the Omnibus in a 2nd book store in Taunton. Thought me a lot of understanding Scots it’s the one I never reread. Don’t actually know why and intent on doing so now!dazednconfused @dazdnconfused • 21 Feb 18:36 GMT

@IrvineWelsh I met you years ago in Dublin around time of Sopranos season 6 which you thought was a lot like MSN, how do you feel about that now?Brian Crilly @BrianCrilly • 21 Feb 10:16 GMT
@IrvineWelsh Such a good book. Your writing helped get me through an opiate detox almost 10years ago. Thankyou ️Carlo 🖤 @Carlo2u2 • 21 Feb 10:08 GMT

@IrvineWelsh One of my favourite books, I saw the play in Edinburgh in 1996, absolutely brilliant.Les Alderson @EggmanLes • 20 Feb 18:28 GMT
@IrvineWelsh it's a fantastic book,in my top three of yours along with Filth & Trainspotting,i dont know about it being unfilmable,i read Marabou Stork Nightmares around the same time as i read Cloud Atlas,you wouldn't think they could make a good film from that book,oh wait yeah,maybe not.Roddy @thetucker70 • 20 Feb 17:43 GMT
@IrvineWelsh Game changer. I first read this when I was in bed sick for a couple of days and feeling sorry for myself. It didn't make me feel much better but it did make me appreciate I maybe wasn't as sick as I thought I was.Cowboy1867 @cowboy1867 • 20 Feb 16:22 GMT

@IrvineWelsh If it ever were filmed, that is a film I absolutely do not want to see, and I don't mean that as an insult, MSN scarred me.political disappointment @matt_broderick • 20 Feb 14:38 GMT

@IrvineWelsh My parents once near Kings Cross waiting in a cafe for train near closing time said to waitress 'are we holding you up?'. She looked baffled and turns out she thought they meant 'hold up' as it robbery.sf @Theroxyfox • 19 Feb 15:53 GMT
@IrvineWelsh Did she mean Slochd?
If so she needs to change at Euston and then Glasgow Central.
