Fiction - Published: 1/Dec/2011 - ISBN: 9781408827413

Two supremely skewed novellas that comprehensively challenge our ideas and assumptions about masculinity and femininity. Carol, the heroine of Cock, is extremely dissatisfied with her married life. Realisation that her husband Dan is not the man for her has come too late and insult follows injury as Dan' s drinking problem gives way to an obsessive fervour for Alcoholics Anonymous. One evening while Dan is out, Carol discovers something entirely unexpected about herself that leads her into rather twisted and distinctly uncharted waters...On the flip side, there is Bull. John Bull is a ma' s man. A rugby player, a drinker. H' s also about to wake up to something of an anatomical surprise, a surprise that his doctor seems to be much more interested in than is entirely proper... Will Self is the author of The Quantity Theory of Insanity, shortlisted for the 1992 John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize and winner of the 1993 Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, and How the Dead Live, which was shortlisted for the Whitbread Novel of the Year 2002, as well as many other books. He lives in London.
