The Acid House

by Irvine Welsh

Category: Fiction / General
Publisher: Vintage
Publication date: 20 April 1995
Number of pages: 304

The characters in this extraordinary book are often - on the surface - depraved, vicious, cowardly and manipulative, but their essential humanity is never undermined. Two professors of philosophy turn pugilists; Leith removal men become the objects of desire for Hollywood goddesses; God turns Boab Coyle into a house-fly; and in the novella, 'A Smart Cunt', the drug-addled young hero spins off on a collision course with his past. The Acid House is a bizarre, disturbing and hilarious collection from one of the most uncompromising and original writers around.

What the papers say:
"Mind-bendingly good."--" GQ magazine" "The collection as a whole is sick, horrific, occasionally moving and very funny."--" New Statesman ""Another season in Hell with Irvine Welsh, and God, it's invigorating."-- "New Statesman"

Author's Biography:
