    Feathers is known as 'Old Filth' -- the 'Filth' standing for: "Failed in London Try Hong Kong".

    Jan 01,  · Gardam, Jane, Old Filth I found this cradle-to-grave fictional biography fascinating for several reasons. One is the portrayal of infancy of an English child in India under the Raj and the sudden transportation of that child to an unforgiving foster parent in Wales, in the footsteps of Rudyard Kipling's "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep."5/5(5). This one-page guide includes a plot summary and brief analysis of Old Filth by Jane Gardam. Old Filth, a historical novel by Jane Mary Gardam, OBE, is the first in a trilogy. Published in to much critical acclaim, the book centers on an elderly man looking back on his life and trying to make sense of the past.

    Filth Paperback Book. Libertarian Philosophy, Fiction, Counter-Culture and Political Books sold by Libertarian Country. FILTH BY: IRVINE WELSH With the Christmas season upon him, Detective Sergeant Bruce Robertson of Edinburgh's finest is gearing up socially—kicking things off with a week of sex and drugs in Amsterdam. There are some sizable. In the book he indeed hangs himself and as his last breaths leave his body, he defecates and the tapeworm comes out of his body as well, thinking it's final thoughts. I've seen both Trainspotting and Filth and have to say I much prefer Filth, though both are amazing. McAvoy as Bruce is truly brilliant and the script is incredible as well.

Aug 12,  · Filth oozes with such grotesque energy that it still seems fresh some 15 years following its initial publication. Bruce Robertson is a wonderful anti-hero and strong proof that you don't need to like a character to enjoy a book, you just need to be entertained by them.4/5().

There are some sizable flies in the ointment, though: a missing wife and child, a nagging cocaine habit, some painful below-the-belt eczema, and a string of demanding extramarital affairs.

"Filth" is doubtless one of the most brilliantly sick books I've ever had the pleasure of reading. It's disgusting, offensive, obscene, and loads of fun.
