"the book that has upset me more than any other. perhaps because the sexual violence is female on male? in any case, it has stayed with me."
The Age of Wire and String
The Age of Wire and String
"exploration of a textual borderland between banality and cleverness."
Atomised
Atomised
"yes, obviously. but anyone who's riled the liberal concensus this much must be doing something right. fans should check out his CD, 'Presence Humaine'"

Brief Interviews With Hideous Men
Brief Interviews With Hideous Men
"sheer linguistic brilliance from the scalpel-wielding moral equalizer of his age. the man has no eyelids."

Fullalove
Fullalove
"ditto Fullalove. the most disturbing book about tabloid journalism i've ever read."
