Publisher's 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.

Early Welsh is great stuff

Early works by Welsh are chaotic, sometimes stream of consciousness stuff. This is what made me love him in the first place!

A fun collection of short stories, many you wouldn't want to listen to in the presence of your mother! Hilarious, depraved, depressing and entertaining - a must read for Welsh fans but not overly accessible to those that aren't fans!

In the quality of the audio for this recording is quite bad, so recommend you listen in a quiet environment.
