Description

Everything that makes Will Self' s fiction so arresting and original is in evidence here in this collection of his best articles, book reviews, and interviews from the "Observer", the "Guardian", the "Independent", the "Evening Standard", and many more. Whether describing penis operations, narcotics or merely pondering the nature of slacking, these pieces are as witty and acerbic as one would expect from one of our foremost contemporary satirists.show more

Review quote

'His prose crackles with wit' Independent 'An explosive collection' J. G. Ballard, Guardian 'Self's gifts as stylist and satirist are amply revealed ... we finally get the undivided Self in all his maddening brilliance' Spectator 'Each of the essays in this collection of journalism and cartoons provides a hit of intravenous prose, a rush of silly and psychedelic excitement ... like De Quincy before him, he is "twitching away the decent drapery" to reveal something darker, deeper and altogether more funny' Observershow more
