The Lost Generation

PDF-file by Tony Black

The Lost Generation PDF ebook download A lonely ex-pat in Paris finds himself acting out of character when a beautiful but troubled young woman walks into his meaningless work-fuelled existence in The Lost Generation, whilst an ex-con takes matters into his own hands when a bullying boss targets his new inamorata in Take it Outside; both stories feature in this new collection of short fiction by Irvine Welsh's 'favourite British crime writer', Tony Black. See a recent school-leaver react against the rigours of the workplace in First Day in the Job and witness the drug-addled descent into madness of a man forced to take the only job in a town peopled by junkies in Too Cool for School. These stories are collected here for the first time in an 8,000-word anthology. First Day in the Job originally appeared in Northwords Magazine whilst the rest of the collection featured in Demolition Magazine and the American anthology, Dicked.

Praise for Tony Black:

'Tony Black is one of those excellent perpetrators of Scottish noir ...
 a compelling and convincing portrayer of raw emotions in a vicious milieu.'
-The Times

'If you're a fan of the Ian Rankin, Denise Mina and Irvine Welsh this is
 most certainly one for you.'
-The Scotsman

'Black renders his nicotine-stained domain in a hardboiled slang that
 fizzles with vicious verisimilitude.'
-The Guardian

'Ripping, gutsy prose and a witty wreck of a protagonist makes this
 another exceptionally compelling, bright and even original thriller.'
-The Mirror

'This up-and-coming crime writer isn't portraying the Edinburgh in
 the Visit Scotland tourism ads.'
-The Sun

'Comparisons with Rebus will be obvious. But that would be too easy
 ... Black has put his defiant, kick-ass stamp on his leading man, creating
 a character that deftly carries the story through every razor-sharp twist
 and harrowing turn.'
-Daily Record
