Paranoiac Gonzo Critical Method,
This review is from: Walking to Hollywood: Memories of Before the Fall (Hardcover)
I parted company with Mr Self and his fiction several years ago as I found the constant dictionary referral quite tiring on the arms.However I like his personal style and found his column in the Independent entertaining,but unfortunately the Psychogeography books are beyond my economic means at present,so I plumped for this.
As with some of the other reviewers I found the title section with its abundance of surrealist sidetracking hard going at times,though the other two stories flow a little easier and require less backtracking to find when there's been a scene change or what mode his mind is in.Overall though it was entertaining to sit in on what is at times a celebrity therapy session,although unless you have an IQ over 150 you'll be needing a good dictionary on hand.

I'm pretty sure there's no interesting link between IQ and levels of big-word use. Your title suggests a comparison with Dali, which is harsh on Self, but maybe fair.
