Carol, the heroine of Cock, is extremely dissatisfied with her married life. Realisation that her husband Dan is not the man for her has come too late and insult follows injury as Dan's drinking problem gives way to an obsessive fervour for Alcoholics Anonymous. One evening while Dan is out, Carol discovers something entirely unexpected about herself that leads her into rather twisted and distinctly uncharted waters ... On the flip side, there is Bull. John Bull is a man's man. A rugby player, a drinker. He's also about to wake up to something of an anatomical surprise, a surprise that his doctor seems to be much more interested in than is entirely proper ...

Reviews

`There is a lot of the attention-grabber in Will Self, and in his prose ... Brings home how daft, compelling and dirty sex can be, all at the same time' * Nicholas Lezard, Independent on Sunday * `His technique is dazzling, packed with wicked wit and and sparkling invention. Cock and Bull is scabrously brilliant stuff' * Time Out * `These stories of transexual metamorphoses and hermaphroditic intercourse are likely to provoke demented laughter of a degree that may knock your socks off' * Evening Standard * `Imagine a film of Kafka's Metamorphosis, scripted by William Burroughs and shot by David Cronenburg and you would have Cock and Bull: two novellas, mirrors of each other, both attempting entry to a "a twilight zone" ... pure delight to verbal perverts everywhere' * Sunday Times *
