"Feeding Frenzy" - Booker nominee Will Self's dazzling collection of journalism and writing. "Self often writes non-fiction as though it were fiction, topping off what we know as reality with the cream of his surreality". ("Guardian"). During the turbulent years of 1995-2000, Will Self surfed the great wave of olive oil which nearly swept British metropolitan culture away, and produced a series of restaurant reviews for "The Observer", whose coruscating criticality led to a cabal of restaurateurs plotting his contract killing. In essays to accompany the work of admired artists such as Marc Quinn, feature articles on rock music and remote places, reviews of cultural phenomena as diverse as voyeuristic television and the Queen Mother, Will Self has produced what can only be described as a cachinnating cacophony of wilful provocation. From the Booker-shortlisted author of "Umbrella", this virtuoso collection, which also includes interviews and musings on Salman Rushdie, Hunter S. Thompson as well as a quasi-autobiography of the author's relationship with London, will be adored by fans of Will Self's fiction and nonfiction. Will Self is the author of nine novels including "Cock and Bull"; "My Idea of Fun"; "Great Apes"; "How the Dead Live"; "Dorian, an Imitation"; "The Book of Dave"; "The Butt"; "Walking to Hollywood" and "Umbrella", which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. He has written five collections of shorter fiction and three novellas: "The Quantity Theory of Insanity"; "Grey Area"; "License to Hug"; "The Sweet Smell of Psychosis"; "Design Faults in the Volvo 760 Turbo"; "Tough, Tough Toys for Tough, Tough Boys"; "Dr. Mukti and Other Tales of Woe" and "Liver: A Fictional Organ with a Surface Anatomy of Four Lobes". Self has also compiled a number of nonfiction works, including "The Undivided Self: Selected Stories"; "Junk Mail"; "Perfidious Man"; "Sore Sites"; "Feeding Frenzy"; "Psychogeography"; "Psycho Too" and "The Unbearable Lightness of Being a Prawn Cracker".
