From April 2019, talking about Umbrella, Shark and Phone and the writing process.
Will features quite heavily in this rather good 1999 documentary about Bret Easton Ellis.
Will Self has written the introduction to the forthcoming Portrait Of Britain, “200 photographs that capture the face of a changing nation”. The book is published on September 6th. You can see preview images, read an excerpt of Will’s introduction and pre-order on the website of the book’s publisher, Hoxton Mini Press.
Watch Will Self’s recent lecture, 20 Years in Solitary Confinement, at Brunel University on March 16.
Nick Papadimitriou is an old friend and long-time imaginative-intellectual collaborator of mine, I consider his book Scarp to be one of the finest contributions to contemporary writing about place and psyche. If you’d like to get a feel for the man and his methodology, have a look at John Rogers’s film about Nick’s life, The London Perambulator. As you’ll see, Nick hasn’t exactly dropped out – but he’s never dropped in; and conventional publishing deals are consequently elusive.
