"[A] fitting send-off... When he's at his best, Welsh spins a story of four men broken by addiction and betrayal; old friends who've shared their youths, somehow lived through them, and just can't quite seem to let go." - NPR

"Unfolds like a Keystone Kops version of Ocean's 11... Welsh's entire oeuvre crackles with idiomatic energy and brio, and this rollicking novel is no different." - Publishers Weekly

"Raunchy, profane, violent, and frequently hilarious... Dead Men's Trousers delivers a strangely life-affirming dose of dark absurdity, ensuring that, if this is the last we see of these characters, they won't soon be forgotten." - *starred* Booklist review

"Welsh's peculiar talent is finding the comedy in sex, addiction, betrayal, and death, and he handles the job so deftly that the novel nearly qualifies as comfort reading even in gross-out mode." - Kirkus Reviews

Earlier praise for Welsh and his writing:

"Blisteringly funny.... " - New York Times Book Review

"It is funny, unflinchingly abrasive, authentic, and inventive, unerringly on-and off-the pulse. It is a true cult, the kind of novel you press on perfect strangers. It validates a world fiction hasn't recognized before." - Time Out

"Irvine Welsh writes with skill, wit, and compassion that amounts to genius. He is the best thing that has happened to British writing in decades." - Nick Hornby, Sunday Times

"Irvine Welsh writes with style, imagination, wit, and force, and in a voice which those alienated by much current fiction clearly want to hear." - Times Literary Supplement

"Irvine Welsh is the real thing-a marvelous admixture of nihilism and heartbreak, pinpoint realism (especially in dialect and tone) and almost archetypal universality." - David Foster Wallace
