Sodomy.Rape.Murder.Theft.Arrogance.Bigotry. All narrated with hysterical, repetitive cruelty by Detective Sargent Bruce Robertson. Quite possibly the most corupt character is modern literature. An alternative running commentary is splattered over the page(literally) by a worm in the protagonist's intestine. Its comentary growing as the book progresses, it is his memory, his conscience and his constant source of physical pain. Gradually the laughter fades, the adrenaline rises and Filth reveals itself to be a tragedy without ever resorting to pop-psychology. It is written entirely in the first person.
Arresting, preverse, provacative and brilliant.
