Will Self
Viking, London, 2006, English
ISBN: 9780141014548

From the Publisher. What if a demented London cabbie called Dave Rudman wrote a book to his estranged son to give him some fatherly advice? What if that book was buried in Hampstead and hundreds of years later, when rising sea levels have put London underwater, spawned a religion? This book offers a historical detective story set in the far future.

This must be one of my all-time favorite books! But also see “Foie Humain,” which centers on the Plantation Club, in Will Self’s Liver. The descriptions are pure genius, the engagement total—I am utterly absorbed.
