About the book


Lloyd from Leith has a transfiguring passion for the unhappily married Heather. Together they explore the true nature of house music and chemical romance. Will their ardour fizzle and die or will it ignite and blaze like a thousand suns? Ecstasy follows them and others through the backstreets of Edinburgh, stifling suburban sitting rooms and the bright lights of London. Exhilarating and dazzling, this is Welsh at his very best.

What the critics say

A pure writer, producing staggering feats of storytelling... The skill of a master
- Independent

Welsh writes with a skill, wit and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing to have happened to British writing for decades
- Sunday Times

Urgent, violent, bleakly funny
- Nick Hornby

Welsh's world is spiky, trashy and brutal. It is also brilliant, hilarious and infused with a kind of punkish morality
- Sunday Express

The poet laureate of the chemical generation
- The Face
