Character or narrative?

I’m drafting my Trainspotting character studies at the moment. Last Sunday I was interviewed on BBC Radio Scotland and I decided I would say it, loud and clear, to see what it sounds like: ‘Welsh’s characters work far better than the narrative in Trainspotting’. It sounded great, and it still does. I think I’m staying with this idea. Let me know what you think. You can hear the interview in full at till 12 October. Skip to around 45 minutes for the discussion on Leith and Trainspotting. And thanks, by the way, to everybody who emails me with comments. Much appreciated.
