Description
Information
'As good as anything he has written … one of Self's grisliest creations. There is no contemporary writer of fiction more perceptive about psychosis' Financial Times

'Self's enjoyable, intelligent collection of savage stories is splendidly satiric. The title story is a brilliant novella that tells of duelling psychiatrists who use mental patients as weapons. You laugh, but you also flinch' Scotsman

'The conceit of 'Dr Mukti' is as prescient as it is hilarious' Observer

'A destabilizing, funny, abundantly Gothic tour de force' Guardian

'Self is a preternaturally gifted writer. On almost every page of his fiction, one finds stupefyingly arresting images, viciously cutting remarks and hypodermic-sharp social observation' GQ

'Fine, meticulously disconcerting prose. Here, ordinary things look sinister, or at least grotesque; things that normally look horrible look ultra-horrible. Quietly, painstakingly scary' Evening Standard

'Hilarious, horrifically paranoid' Time Out

'Very funny. The flips and folds of Self's writing are as muscular and alarming as ever; there is simply no one else using language in such a manner in Britain today' Independent on Sunday

'Examining Mr Self's case notes, I recommend we up the dosage' Herald
