Summary

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 C**t', 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.

  • Conversation between Irvine Welsh and Iggy Pop
  • The Acid House
  • The Granton Star Cause
  • Disnae Matter

  • Snowman Building Parts For Rico the Squirrel
