Irvine Welsh at Bloody Scotland 2022

Thursday, September 15, 2022 - 22:30 to 23:30
Bloody Scotland online
Irvine Welsh

The Open University is delighted to support Irvine Welsh at Bloody Scotland 2022, interviewed by writer and TV presenter James Crawford. 

An original. A reluctant national treasure. Irvine Welsh stamped his unique brand of storytelling across the consciousness of a nation and changed the face of British fiction with the iconic and ground-breaking Trainspotting.

His 2008 book Crime, the first to feature troubled detective Ray Lennox, was recently adapted for television starring Dougray Scott. 

Irvine joins Bloody Scotland digitally from Miami to discuss the series and his new Lennox novel The Long Knives in which the DI fights to unravel the truth behind an MP’s murder while battling his own demons and drug addiction.

Please note that this digital event will be available live and will also be available to view up to (and including) Thursday 06 October. Tickets are £5, available from the Bloody Scotland website
