Overview

Will's mother's hokey homily, Waste not, want not . . . hisses in his ears as he oscillates furiously on the spot, havering on the threshold between the bedroom and the dying one . . .all the while cradling the plastic leech of the syringe in the crook of his arm. Oscillating furiously, and, as he'd presses the plunger home a touch more . . . and more, he hears it again and again- Waaaste nooot, waaant nooot . . . ! whooshing into and out of him, while the blackness wells up at the periphery of his vision, and his hackneyed heart begins to beat out weirdly arrhythmic drum fills - even hitting the occasional rim-shot on his resonating rib cage. He waits, paralysed, acutely conscious, that were he simply to press his thumb right home, it'll be a cartoonish death- That's all folks!as the aperture screws shut forever.

Unstoppably entertaining * The Times on Umbrella * Intellectually dazzling and emotionally frazzling * Guardian on Shark * One of the most significant literary works of our century * New Statesman on Phone *


One of Britain's most inspired writers offers a no-holds-barred tale of his fascinating life . . Spectacular. . . From London to Marrakesh to India to Australia and back, Self delivers a hallucinatory, confessional version of his life * Kirkus * Unstoppably entertaining * The Times on Umbrella * Intellectually dazzling and emotionally frazzling * Guardian on Shark * One of the most significant literary works of our century * New Statesman on Phone * Self's writing has the same technicolour velocity, malign comedy... as his best novels * Claire Allfree, Evening Standard * Darkly angelic prose... a joy to read, with the final part in particular recalling David Foster Wallace at his best * Alex Preston, Observer *
