My Idea of Fun by Will Self
Bloomsbury 1993

Ian Wharton is introduced in the genteel south English coast town of Saltdean. He has a photographic memory, which is good news for the Fat Controller who knows just how to turn the repulsive Ian into his significant other. In this novel Self confirms himself to be a master of the grotesque. His writing is elegant, his invention lurid and his mind a whirlpool of ideas.
Will Self was born in London.
