My Idea of Fun Summary

My Idea of Fun: Reissued by Will Self

When the young Ian Wharton first meets Mr Broadhurst, he is completely unaware of the influence he will come to exert over his life as `The Fat Controller' - a constant companion and confidant and also the obese, erudite manifestation of Ian's mental illness. As Ian's idea of fun becomes increasingly extreme, the reader is taken to a place where morality is eroded by the dull grind of modernity and everything becomes admissable.

My Idea of Fun Reviews

`This is a brilliant first novel, obscene, funny, opulently written, and, of course, agonisingly moral' * Observer *
`No one else I can think of writes about contemporary Britain with such elan, energy and witty intelligence. Rejoice' * Nicholas Lezard, Guardian *
`Written with diabolical gusto and skill' * Evening Standard *
`Vastly entertaining' * The Times *
