The Quantity Theory of Insanity Summary

The Quantity Theory of Insanity: Reissued by Will Self

The fictional world of Will Self is unlike any other. In The Quantity Theory of Insanity, we learn, amongst other things, the dark and terrible secret of Ward 9, why you are right to think that London is full of dead people and that each and every human being is caught up in a colossal balancing act between the sane and the insane ... The Quantity Theory of Insanity is acerbic, satirical, hilarious and, most of all, utterly unique in imaginative vision.

The Quantity Theory of Insanity Reviews

'If a manic J. G. Ballard and a depressive David Lodge got together, they might produce something like The Quantity Theory of Insanity. But Will Self's world is all his own' * Martin Amis *
'This hilarious black satire seethes with wonderfully weird ideas and bizarre images, written with a delicate precision' * Literary Review *
'Will Self's The Quantity Theory of Insanity is as disturbing as satire ought to be and these days seldom is. Also it is unashamedly funny as well as chilling, presented with an air of cunning repose' * Guardian *
'Self savages any human institution or being that smacks of ponderosity. And he writes like a devil' * Mail on Sunday *
