Ten of the best drug experiences in literature

At the Guardian, John Mullan named ten of the best drug experiences in literature.

One title on the list:

Plenty of degradation in Welsh's tale of an Edinburgh heroin addict, but also an unconscionable observation of pleasure. "Sick Boy's are innocent and full ay wonder, his expression like a bairn thit's come through oan Christmas morning tae a pile ay gift-wrapped presents under a tree".
