Author(s): Will Self
A 65-yr-old woman lies dying in a London hospital. As she's in the process of being ferried across to the other world (which turns out to be remarkably like this one), she reflects on her husbands, her children, her entire life.
Will Self is the author of a number of books of short stories and two previous novels, My Idea of Fun and Great Apes - all are published by Penguin in paperback. He has three children, and is married to the Independent columnist Deborah Orr. They live in London.
