The Bedroom Secrets Of The Master Chefs by Irvine Welsh

The Bedroom Secrets Of The Master Chefs is set in Edinburgh where Danny Skinner is a restaurant inspector. He loves his mom and his girlfriend, but the two demons in his life are alcohol and his obsession about finding who his father was. He suspects his father was a chef, so he searches different restaurants in hopes of finding him. A new co-worker in Danny's office is Brian Kibby, and he's the naive, virginal opposite to Danny's drunk and bullying behavior. Danny immediately develops an intense hatred for Brian. After a night of drunken revelry, Danny realizes that he feels no ill effects, but Brian seems to suffer horribly. The more abuse he heaps on his body, the sicker Brian gets. Danny finds himself on the horns of a dilemma. Irvine Welsh's novel has received mixed reviews with The Independent saying, "It is in this respect that this novel - with its slightly mad title referring to a quest for Danny's father that remains almost incidental to its main narrative drive - is the most touching and beautiful of his writings."
