Better than The Bible
Will Self has a talent for looking at a subject from new perspectives. If the Bible is written to give comfort and information concerning death then god should have aksed Will Self to write it. The story follows a woman as she approaches death, dies, lives after death, is reincarnated and dies again.
His style , leaves you unsure of where the plot is going and why its going there. Consequently every word is read carefully and searched for meaning. As one does so, death the most emotive of subjects is explored and the messages are dripped in.
The conclusion to me - death is no big deal, it is living happily that is the trick.

Truly wonderful book
This is a great book; clever, witty and challenging, His central character is a monster but against your will you understand and sympathise with her, The experience of the book is enhanced even further by the fabulous performance by Buffy Davis-if there is an award for book performance, she should get it.
