The Acid Test

by Anya Reiss


Anya Reiss’ stomach churning portrait of multiple-occupancy and binge drinking explores what it’s like when you hate your friends and they hate you too. Apparently hell hath no fury like a woman scorned –but what about a woman who can’t even shave her legs in peace? Dana, Ruth and Jess are alcohol reliant and prematurely disillusioned, chain smoking their way through poisonous relationship after poisonous relationship – until someone’s Dad turns up.

Three drunk girls, one middle-aged man. What could possibly go wrong?
