Will Self is a an award-winning journalist and cultural commentator, and one of the most distinctive writers working today. Dubbed 'the most daring and delightful novelist of his generation' by the Guardian, Will Self's Why Read is a cornucopia of thoughtful and brilliantly witty essays on writing and literature.
From the foibles of his typewriter repairman to the irradiated exclusion zone of Chernobyl, to the Australian outback and to literary forms past and future - Self covers it all. With his characteristic intellectual brio, he aims his inimitable eye at titans of literature like Woolf, Kafka, Orwell and Conrad.
Whether he is writing on the rise of the bookshelf as an item of furniture in the nineteenth century or on the impossibility of Googling his own name in a world lived online, Self's trademark intoxicating prose and mordant, energetic humour infuse every piece.
