Nearly a decade ago I was talking to a friend about the film Trainspotting and I wondered how different the book was She said she loved Irvine Welsh and lent me his short story collection Acid House I barely got through it and returned it with a teeth clenching thanks The content bothered me in the same way the Maruis de Sade did recently It was not just shock value perversion it was aimlessly vile and ugly I might even call it evil but not in the puritanical sense in the humane sense I don t mind tagging along with a character that s doing degrading things but there must be a reason within the plotThis brings me to Ames I Pass Like Night which I believe from some reviews is considered profane and even vindictive It really is not Not at all There are perversions and degrading moments but they are entirely honest and humane Alexander Vine is a great character older and smarter than Holden Caulfield but similar The writing style makes an attempt at Hemingwayesue but falls short just a little Alexander s sexual ambiguity his kinship to the underground his fear of commitment and normalcy these are all cathartic for the reader He takes things out to their logical if extreme conclusion and the reader can follow along vicariously But he s never vindictiveThe true test for books like this is whether or not they define an era place or people in a uniue way without alienating readers with jargon or difficult language For me this passes those tests and though this isn t how we may like to remember NYC in the 80s this book could well be regarded as a classic record of that time
