The Acid House Summary


The Acid House by Irvine Welsh

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.

The Acid House Reviews


"Every bit as filthy, funny and provocative as the novel that proceeded it [Trainspotting]... Welsh's first collection of short stories is a riot of colourful characters, eye-watering vernacular and imaginative story-telling. This is one of Britain's best writers in his swaggering pomp, and the result is brilliantly addictive." * Esquire *
