Publisher Description:
The New York Times Book Review has called Will Self a defiant satirist with a peculiar mastery of the vocabulary of modern neurosis, and Tough, Tough Toys for Tough, Tough Boys is a dazzling foray into his funhouse world. Status-conscious New Yorkers navigate the perils of dating along with their very literal inner children. A man is seduced into a misanthropically charged symbiosis with the insects infesting his cottage. In The Rock of Crack as Big as the Ritz, a black Londoner discovers an enormous rock of crack cocaine underpinning his house--and quickly turns it into an efficient little empire. In the title story a psychoanalyst strips away all the sang froid of his professionalism to find beneath ... precisely nothing. Sharp, funny, and packed with verbal fireworks, Tough, Tough Toys for Tough, Tough Boys confirms yet again Will Self's stature as one of the most accomplished and original writers of his generation.
