John Self, consumer extraordinaire, rolls around New York and London, making deals, spending wildly and doing reckless movie-world business, all the while grabbingeverything he can to sate his massive appetites: alcohol, pornography, a mountain of junk food and more. Ceaselessly inventive and thrillingly savage, this is a tale of life lived without restraint; of money, the terrible things it can do and the disasters it can precipitate.

Labours the point, criticising something we know to be quite reprehensible, with little insight. Some meta-play with Martin Amis is kinda cool. Liked the chess scene towards the end. Read full review
