1.0 out of 5 stars enough Will, please, 27 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Psychogeography (Hardcover)
I've enjoyed the Will Self fiction I've read, but this ...... if Self wasn't his name it would be appropriate anyway as a pen name . .
I don't want to read a book where every sentence is carefully crafted to simply convince the reader of how clever the author really is..... very tiring

Nick Rennison writing about Self said that he:

is sometimes presented as a bad-boy outsider, writing, like the Americans William S Burroughs and Hubert Selby Jr, about sex, drugs and violence in a very direct way. Yet he is not some class warrior storming the citadels of the literary establishment from the outside, but an Oxford educated, middle-class metropolitan who, despite his protestations to the contrary in interviews, is about as much at the heart of the establishment as you can get, a place he has occupied almost from the start of his career.

Thank you and good night.
