Apologies if there's already a thread about him, but I did a search and didn't find one. I'm all new to his work and stuff. I recently watched Trainspotting and thought it was great. So I when I was in Barnes & Noble, I found some of his books. I picked up Glue and started reading. Whoa! I could not understand a goddamn word! I put it back on the shelf and gave myself a minute to recooperate. Is he too Scottish for me? Am I too American for him? That's not even Scottish, is it? Am I a dunce? Should I try reading Glue anyway? And despite all that, could I get some recomendations for a first time Welsh reader anyway?
