'The best work of Self's I've read' Literary Review

A moving, hilarious and scabrous portrayal of egos, appetites and addictions, Liver is an extraordinary examination of lives out of control and beyond saving by the pre-eminent chronicler of our neuroses and our times.

'Peculiar, subtle, affecting, humane . . . busy with stylistic experiment, high-concept in-jokes, verbal impasto and flights of fancy. Tremendous fun' Guardian

'No one can revel in the disease and decay of humanity like Self' Metro

'The literary equivalent of Francis Bacon. What counts most is Self's enthralling, muscular and joyous use of language. His obsidian brilliance is incontrovertible' Independent on Sunday

'Self is a superb stylist and the laureate of substance abuse, and these hepatic rhapsodies contain some of his most inventive writing' The Times
