Description

"Grey Area", like all of Will Self's fiction, is funny, bizarre and disturbing. From a London where every waiter is an aspiring writer to a supply teacher killed by the colossal philistinism of his pupils, this is a truly inimitable showcase of short stories.show more

Review quote

'Try these short stories which, at their best, have a satiric focus and punch absent from the rest of the contemporary scene' Nicholas Lezard, Guardian 'A beautiful collection of Nathaniel West-ish tales which manage to combine the quirky stylistic devices which we know and love from The Quantity Theory of Insanity ... with a chilling moral diagnosis of all that is wrong with our society' Financial Times 'A perversely colourful, delightful triumph' Time Out 'The stories are at times funny, at times bizarre, at times caustic, but always readable' Daily Telegraphshow more
