Recommended by Cookie N Screen for Graham
My choice for Graham is Filth.
I have many reasons for picking this. One, because I believe everyone in existence and on this planet needs to see it. It's one of my favourite books of all time. It's a psychological dark comedy that crazily deals with the disgusting debauchery that Bruce goes through. Though Welsh doesn't acquire you to be sympathetic to the character, he offers understanding.
It's a heavy departure from Sci-Fi and Fantasy. It's mean, it's crazy and the narrative is absolutely bonkers. It's a difficult read because it’s told in a Scottish tongue but when you get the beat of it, it flows so well and the character bounces off the screen. It's entertaining but there is a dark side to the character and much more reason behind his madness. Welsh is a genius at captivating humanity on the edge.
