Since the release of his first story collection in 1991, Will Self has
been hailed as a master of the short story. Now, for the first time,
selected stories from his five highly praised collections will be
available in one volume, introduced by Rick Moody. These stories, drawn
from The Quantity Theory of Insanity, Gray Area, Tough, Tough Toys for Tough, Tough Boys, Dr. Mukti and Other Tales of Woe, and Liver-plus
one story never before published-give us unexpected comic twists,
masterful language, and the ordinary colored by the absurd: a man who
finds his mother walking in a London suburb ten months after her death;
the odd nuances of a drab office worker's daily routine; and a send-up
of the British elite that takes place after a carcinogenic fog blankets
England. Compared favorably to Nabokov, Pynchon, Gaddis, Ballard, and
DeLillo, Will Self is a bold satirist whose selected stories represent
some of the best and most outrageous fiction of the last decade.
