About this book

This stimulating and comprehensive study of Will Self's work spans his entire career and offers insightful readings of all his fictional and non-fictional work up to and including his Booker prize nominated novel Umbrella.

About the authors

Graham J. Matthews is Lecturer in Twentieth Century Literature at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University.

Reviews

“Graham Matthews' study is an excellent introduction to Self's writing, which is accessible in approach  without ever sacrificing intellectual depth or complexity. There are many interesting theoretical interventions throughout which give it range and bite, and he expertly captures the violence, virtuosity, and vitriol of his subject.” (Dr Daniel Lea, Principal Lecturer in Contemporary Literature, Oxford Brookes University, UK)
