When not hallucinating, Strang tells his life story, beginning in a "scheme" local authority housing in Leith , Scotland, with his violent, delusional parents, two half-brothers one a womanizer, the other flamboyantly gay , and his promiscuous sister, all of whom he despises.

When his father is jailed for the violent assault of a taxi driver, the Strangs are forced to return to Scotland — a mere 18 months after they left. Over the next few years, Strang grows into a violent, misogynistic thug.

He maintains a full-time job in as a systems analyst for the fictional investment group, 'Scottish Spinsters' a probable reference to the real Scottish Widows firm. He joins a gang of football hooligans who are attached to Hibernian F.

Strang enjoys his life as a "top boy," feared by the entire town, until the gang kidnaps a young woman who rejected their advances and gang rapes her; Strang informs the reader that he is horrified, but too intimidated to try and stop them, even though he himself does not join in. The gang evades prison, but Strang is stricken with guilt and withdraws completely into depression.

He briefly revives a few months later when he meets a woman and genuinely feels love for the first time. Around the same time he begins to take ecstasy , and even befriends his gay half-brother.

While I was wearing out my grey cells recently, trying to come up with a decent essay title, I was unexpectedly aided by a bit of news. This does obviously not mean that the women in the texts do not speak at all.
