Worst. Person. Ever.

A razor-sharp portrait of a morally bankrupt and gleefully wicked modern man, Worst. Person. Ever. is Douglas Coupland's gloriously filthy, side-splittingly funny and unforgettable novel.

Meet Raymond Gunt. A decent chap who tries to do the right thing. Or, to put it another way, the worst person ever: a foul-mouthed, misanthropic cameraman, trailing creditors, ex-wives and unhappy homeless people in his wake. Men dislike him, women flee from him.

Worst. Person. Ever. is a deeply unworthy book about a dreadful human being with absolutely no redeeming social value. 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 a Survivor-style reality show. Along the way, Gunt suffers multiple comas and unjust imprisonment, is forced to re-enact the ‘Angry Dance’ from the movie Billy Elliot and 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.

Rezension
Worst. Person. Ever. is very much a return to form. It had me laughing out loud on the bus to work.
Zitat
"Douglas Coupland has surely reserved his place at the top table of North American fiction." Independent on Sunday "He is one of the most popular serious writers of our time." -- Aravind Adiga "He is a brilliant social commentator and a wit of our times." TLS "In the future, if people are curious about what it was like to live in our times, they will do well to read Douglas Coupland." -- Yann Martel
