Overview

The Acid House by Irvine Welsh

Nominated for a BAFTA award. From the author of Trainspotting, an adaptation of another of his best-selling works - a collection of short stories - The Acid House Trilogy

The Acid House Trilogy is made up of three of Welsh's most powerful stories; The Granton Star Cause (starring Stephen McCole and Maurice Roeves), The Acid House (starring Ewen Bremner, Martin Clunes and Jemma Redgrave) and A Soft Touch (starring Kevin McKidd and Michelle Gomez). All three stories come from the rough, tough badlands of the schemes of North Edinburgh and take us into a dark but hilarious world of drugs, deviant sex and football hooliganism fired by Welsh's passion and fierce steaming rock and roll.

This man is so brilliant he will blow you away. These stories are so funny and so repulsive at the same time that you can't help but enjoy yourself. I would like to read one fresh Irvine Welsh novel a month and I would be the happiest reader alive. It's too bad that more people will never read him or 'get' him because he is the most phenomenal writer out there. And you don't have to be a young, hip, Euro druggie to appreciate him. I am a 43 year old Texas woman who knows that stumbling on to Irvine Welsh is the best thing that will happen to a reader who craves something extraordinary.
