Saw him with my Mum and Elder Sister at a Literature festival once.

Read quite a few of his books as well.


Probably about 60 % of his work is about Mental Illness and how it's seen and tackled in Society.

An undoubted very clever man but very intellectually vain as well.

He careers about and slags everyone off for being racist, but he only talks in the most erudite of posh upper class clipped English toungs, mixes with only literary avant guard snobs, and doubtfull ever has ever spoken to anyone who is black or isn't privately educated, or hasnt won the orange booker..

Is he bi-polar do you think? Just think of the elevation in awareness and acceptance of bi-polar and hope it would bring to sufferers of bi-polar, and optimistic framework for meaningful change, if Will Self added his name to the bi-polar alumini?

I know he's had a few admissions in Mental Hospital before.

I'm not sure what his diagnosis is though.

Wikipedia him.

Did not take long..

Self is 6' 5" tall,[34] collects and repairs vintage typewriters and smokes a pipe;[35] he claims that a psychologist once described him as schizoid personality and borderline personality.[36]

Will Self - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I also like the bit about being most famous for taking heroin in John Majors campaign plane

Can we talk about another feelgood writer now?

Say... Samuel Beckett or TS Eliot?

That is a very good suggestion and idea rass, any recomendations? Was merely attempting to place oneself back into the affray and assert wordy lofty ambitions of seeing ones rantings in cyber print on screen. So usually blocked and deleted by regulatory librelism and forum intervention.

I think any book you like is feelgood. I get thrilled by books that'd drive others into destitution and despair. They have me dancing mental jigs.

A very witty story about psychotic breakdown is Filth by Irvine Welsh.

Every mental patient should read One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, at least once.
