Another chance to listen to Will Self on The Verb talking about his walk from JG Ballard’s house in Shepperton to Heathrow and then his two-day trek from the airport in Dubai to The World resort. He also gives a short reading. The essay will feature as the introduction to his second collection of Psychogeography columns to be published in November by Bloomsbury.
Boston Globe: “Sex on airplanes? Are you speaking from experience?”
Self: “Yes. Well, yes. Is it necessary to elaborate? Sex is ubiquitous and stereotypic. I haven’t got any extra genitalia or anything.”

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.
