    eBook Self and I PDF ¾ Self and PDF/EPUB or ☆ 14th century.co self download, Self and pdf, Self and I EpubHaving recently begun Will Self's own forthcoming memoir I was reminded this exists and it turns out to be vastly engaging De Abaitua was Self's 'amanuensis' – for which read dogsbody housemate minder and general sidekick – during Self's nineties heyday as the designated countercultural emissary to mainstream literature Back then de Abaitua was an aspiring novelist; now he's a disillusioned one who's realised that a literary memoir is in keeping with the spirit of the age and one which can be pegged to a famous figure is better still in terms of actually selling any bloody copies So around the hijinks and the media parties
