Free Library of Philadelphia - Irvine Welsh - The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Tuesday, February 3 at 7:30pm
The Sex Lives of Siamese Twins Irvine Welsh The “genuinely, hauntingly, transgressive” (Guardian) navigator of underground realms of sex, drugs, and the Scottish working class, Irvine Welsh cooks up speedballs of kinetically subversive fiction laced with gritty vernacular and scalding social commentary. His first novel, Trainspotting, a mordantly funny portrait of the heroin-addicted fringe youth of 1980s Edinburgh, was adapted by Danny Boyle into a quintessential piece of British cinema. Welsh is also the author of more than a dozen other novels, including Ecstasy, Glue, Filth, Porno, and Skagboys. In his latest book, Welsh tells a dark story of obsessive weight-loss, abject codependency, and the media-driven transformation from hero to villain.

Free Library of Philadelphia - Yasmina Reza - Happy are the Happy
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Thursday, February 12 at 7:30pm
Happy are the Happy Yasmina Reza French playwright, novelist, and screenwriter Yasmina Reza’s work has won international acclaim for holding “the mirror up to bourgeois hypocrisy with the savage indignation of a born satirist” (The Guardian). Her darkly comic and socially prescient plays, including Conversations After a Burial, The Passage of Winter, and The Unexpected Man, have been translated into 35 languages and staged worldwide. She has twice won the Tony for Best Play, for 1998’s Art and 2009’s God of Carnage. Her other work includes seven novels and a popular memoir. Her new novel, Happy are the Happy, vacillates between cruelty and humor in a study of the elusive and ethereal qualities of love and commitment.
