A secondhand book that has been read but is in good condition. Some damage to the cover, including some scuff marks and creasing, but no holes or tears. All pages are undamaged, with very minimal creasing, but no tearing. No pencil underlining of text, no highlighting of text, no writing in margins. Patches of yellowing and discolouring at the edges of the pages. No missing pages. An old and aged, but clean solid copy.
"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."
