WILL SELF : PHONE
Booker-shortlisted author Will Self talking about his new novel: Phone
Hang on to the phone – feel the smoothness of its bevelled screen…! Place your thumb in the soft depression of its belly-button – turn it over andover… a five hundred-quid worry bead – and all I worry about is losing the bloody thing…!
For the four characters at the heart of Will Self’s brilliantly acute novel, the five hundred-quid worry bead in their pocket may be both a blessing and a curse. Uniting our most urgent contemporary concerns; from the ubiquitous mobile phone to a family in chaos, from the horror of modern war to the end of privacy, Phone is Will Self’s most important and compelling novel to date.
Will Self is the author of many novels and books of non-fiction, including Great Apes, The Book Of Dave, How The Dead Live (shortlisted for the Whitbread Novel Of The Year 2002), The Butt (winner of the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction 2008), Umbrella (shortlisted for the Booker Prize 2012), and Shark.
