Marabou Stork Nightmares

Novel by Irvine Welsh


Marabou Stork Nightmares is an experimental novel by Irvine Welsh.
The book's narrative is split into two styles: a conventional first person account of the past and a more surreal, stream of consciousness account of an otherworldly present. Like many of Welsh's novels, it is written in Edinburgh Scots dialect. The plot consists of the memories and hallucinations of the protagonist, Roy Strang, making him an extreme example of an unreliable narrator.
