Provocateurs Will Self and Ralph Steadman join forces in this post-millennial meditation on the vexed relationship between psyche and place in a globalised world, bringing together for the first time the very best of their ‚Psychogeography‘ columns for the Independent.
The introduction, ‚Walking to New York‘, is both a prelude to the verbal and visual essays that make up this extraordinary collaboration, and a revealing exploration of the split in Self’s Jewish-American-British psyche and its relationship to the political geography of the post-9/11 world.
Ranging from the Scottish Highlands to Istanbul and from Morocco to Ohio, Will Self’s engaging and disturbing vision is perfectly counter-pointed by Ralph Steadman’s edgy and beautiful artwork.
“’Brilliantly original, Will Self is one of those rare writers whose imaginations change for ever the way we see the world’” – JG Ballard
