The Book of Dave by Will Self
The Book of Dave

Elizabeth Walton, January 1, 2010

A linguistic tour-de-force set in a not-so-distant post-apocalyptic future where the misogynistic rantings of a disgruntled London cabbie have become holy writ to a society that survived the madeinchina. Large sections of the book are written in what is basically text-messaged cockney dialect, but don't let that deter you: this book made me laugh, and more importantly, it made me think. And one thing I think is that Will Self is one of the best novelists on either side of the pond.
