    A short story published in full as a Penguin 60 Originally taken from a short story collection called Grey Area.Not too sure what to make of this one It was clever in its use of multiple themes related to scale , but somehow suffered from being pushed into those multiple themes That doesn t really make sense when I read it back, but it still says what I mean A drug addicted divorcee living next door to a model village ie a scale model of a village , who has lost his sense of scale The story in several chapters explains the difficulties of his life Drug induced hallucinations, current situations and future visions all mixed together Some plot lines spoiled in the spoiler below view spoiler As well as distance perceptions, he also has a limescale problem in his kettle and his bathroom scales are stolen There is also a description of the scaly sides of the Lizard peninsula, and the frill necked lizard on the cover but he doesn t mention the scales on this Other than scale related issues, there is a whole lot of other loosely connected storylines woven through this hide spoiler

    How much could one say about a book this small Well, never judge a book by its size which does matter, at least according to the author He is extremely intrigued by the topic of dimension and scale, and that is easy enough to notice in this short story.The plot follows the adventures of the protagonist, a divorced professor living in a cramped bungalow, into a literary rabbit hole Using the thoughts, reflections and weird dreams of his character, the author aims to disorientate the readers and, in my opinion, he succeeds It s not a coincidence that he cites as his principal inspiration the works of Lewis Carroll and Jonathan Swift.Self s vocabulary comes across as labyrinthic as his prose, nodding to the work of Thomas Pynchon, whereas the storyline itself might recall Nick Hornby.

    Five short chapters and myriad ideas I m tempted to re read this to see if there were any scales I missed.Reptile plates Model village Weighing device Libra astrological sign Motorway sign intervals The kettle s flaky deposit Sense of size and proportion Passing of time The ascent Comparative success as a writer but notAnything to do with tartar or teeth I think.

    Self provides us with a bizarre bit of satire the first person narrative of a drug using divorced dad who lives in a bungalow next to a miniature village and has problems with his sense of scale The reader needs to distinguish carefully between narcotic dreams, future visions and other strange observations of un reality I should give Self a fair chance to enchant me.Self se satire verg konsentrasie van die leser om te onderskei tussen die verteller se dwelmvisioene en ander vorms van toekomssienings Ek sal di skrywer n meer verteenwoordigende en regverdige kans moet gee.

    What would you call a book this size, a novelette Anyway, this was the first story by Will Self that I ever read and probably stands as my favourite of his An intriguing premise and a touching story about a kettermine addict who one day loses his sense of scale.

    The first Will Self I ve read Nicely odd, but not quite nice enough that I ll actively search out short stories by him But if someone put one in my hands and said Here, read this, I probably would.

    this was fine could just as easily have been written by DFW, JSF or Nick Hornby or someone else male
