A national bestseller, Douglas Coupland'sWorst. Person. Ever.is a gloriously filthy, side-splittingly funny and unforgettable novel. Now in paperback.
Worst. Person. Ever. is a deeply unworthy book about a dreadful human being with absolutely no redeeming social value. Raymond Gunt, in the words of the author, "is a living, walking, talking, hot steaming pile of pure id." He's a B-unit cameraman who enters an amusing downward failure spiral that takes him from London to Los Angeles and then on to an obscure island in the Pacific where a major American TV network is shooting aSurvivor-style reality show. Along the way, Raymond suffers multiple comas and unjust imprisonment, is forced to reenact the "Angry Dance" from the movieBilly Elliotand finds himself at the centre of a nuclear war. We also meet Raymond's upwardly failing sidekick, Neal, as well as Raymond's ex-wife, Fiona, herself "an atomic bomb of pain."
Even though he really puts the "anti" in anti-hero, you may find Raymond Gunt an oddly likeable character. But you will want to wash his mouth out with soap.
