About the Author

He is a regular broadcaster on television and radio and as a journalist a contributor to a plethora of publications. He lives in London with his wife and four children.


'If a manic J. G. Ballard and a depressive David Lodge got together, they might produce something like The Quantity Theory of Insanity. But Will Self's world is all his own' * Martin Amis *
'This hilarious black satire seethes with wonderfully weird ideas and bizarre images, written with a delicate precision' * Literary Review *
'Will Self's The Quantity Theory of Insanity is as disturbing as satire ought to be and these days seldom is. Also it is unashamedly funny as well as chilling, presented with an air of cunning repose' * Guardian *
'Self savages any human institution or being that smacks of ponderosity. And he writes like a devil' * Mail on Sunday *
