Described by the Guardian as ‘the most daring and delightful novelist of his generation,’ Will Self comes to ILFDublin. A novelist, journalist, political commentator and television personality, Will Self ‘doesn’t write fiction for people to identify with… I write to astonish people.’ Often fierce, memorably grotesque and outlandish, his novels include The Butt, winner of the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize for Comic Fiction 2008, and Umbrella, short-listed for the Man Booker prize 2012. His latest novel Phone is wildly entertaining, a brilliant skewering of the contemporary world. This event is being recorded for broadcast on The Book Show (with Sinéad Gleeson) for RTÉ Radio 1.
