An original novel full of dark humour and bizzare situations exploring the complex appeal of Celtic folklore and mysticism on numerous characters from various countries culminating in the destruction of their dreams.
This is a first novel from Welsh poet David Greenslade. Set in a mountain retreat in the Gwent Hills, Celtic Hot Tub is a tipsy mix of sex, pseudo-mysticism and the search for identity. Terasine Jasmine Ayre - Terri for short - is the main character in a place that she herself describes as 'a perverted Celtic death-hole'.
American by birth, Terri arrives in Wales to study Celtic folklore, but finds herself caught up in bizarre rituals and sexual shenanigans at ‘one of the scariest mountain retreats the Celtic fringe has to offer’. Peopled with a curious cast of characters - such as the four-breasted Sheena - Celtic Hot Tub questions everything Celtic, from history and politics to language, religion and magic.
This is an off-the-wall, original book that will not be to everyone's taste. A novel of epic proportions, it blends dark humour with blind passion and conflicting ideals.
