OK, so I have only read it once, pretty much as soon as it came out, so that was a good while ago now. But...,
This review is from: How the Dead Live (Paperback)
...definitely Self's worst book.
The aborigine ruined the whole book for me. He seemed out of place and there just so the author could have fun writing an aborigine accent. Though maybe it was worth all that just for the line lamenting how Fish and Chip shops have been replaced by Kebab Houses. It's a classic, so I won't ruin it by typing it out here.
As for best book ever written - try Great Apes instead.
