Sinopsis: The Cutting Room heralds the arrival of an outstanding, contemporary Glasgow novel. Its charismatic protagonist, Rilke, is eccentric, witty and frequently outrageous. An auctioneer by profession, he is an acknowledged expert in antiques but also considers himself something of an expert in many other fields. When Rilke comes upon a hidden collection of disturbing erotic photographs, he feels compelled to unearth more about the deceased owner who coveted them. What follows is a compulsive journey of discovery, decadence and deviousness, steered in part by Rilke's gay promiscuity and inquisitive nature. Louise Welsh's writing is stylish and captivating; she combines aspects of a detective story with shades of the gothic in a colourful Glasgow ranging from the genteel suburbs to a transvestite club, an auction house to the bookies and pubs to porn shops. The result is a page-turning and deliciously original debut.
The Cutting Room is a hugely commendable debut, assured and memorable. Crime fiction may have its prize-winner at last. -- The Independent

‘A stunning work of fiction’ ‘One of the most intriguing assured and unputdownable debuts to come out of Scotland in recent years.’ -- The Sunday Times
‘Astonishingly this is a first novel, catapulting Welsh straight into the superstar league, while establishing Rilke as a classic original.’ -- The Times
‘The year’s most talked about crime debut’ -- The Scotsman
