In this special edition of ‘The Monocle Daily’, we look back at some of the year’s best ‘Meet the Writers’ interviews. In this episode Georgina Godwin meets Irvine Welsh, the hugely acclaimed and often controversial author who defined a generation with his debut novel ‘Trainspotting’. In his new book ‘The Blade Artist’, Begbie is back. Find out how this bad boy of Glasgow has reinvented himself – and how the author has too.
