Summary

John Self is addicted to life. Porn freak and jetsetter, a aficionado of wealth and women, Self is the shameless heir to a fast-food culture where money beats out an insistent invitation to futile self-gratification. Out in New York, mingling with the mighty, making a fortune but spending more, Self is embroiled in the corruption, the brutality, and the obscenity of the money conspiracy.

Spot on performance.

This is a brilliantly performed narration of an enormously entertaining novel. Stephen Pacey gets the mid-Atlantic tone of John Self exactly as I'd hoped. Great value for money over 16 hours. Recommended.

Painfully funny and sad<br />

Well read, painfully funny at times and hideous observation of humanity at its worst. A little on the long-winded side but well worth it.
