1st Printing. pp. 317. Clean, tight, unmarked; absolute minimal wear; Worst. Person. Ever. is a deeply unworthy book about a dreadful human being with absolutely no redeeming social value. Even though he really puts the 'anti' in anti-hero, you may find Raymond Gunt an oddly likeable character. You may find his various predicaments oddly illuminating of the pitfalls of 21st century life. But you will want to wash his mouth out with soap.
From the Publisher
Douglas Coupland''s gloriously filthy, side-splittingly
funny and unforgettable new novel, his first full-length work of
fiction in four years.
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 a
Survivor-style reality show. Along the way, Gunt suffers
multiple comas and unjust imprisonment, is forced to reenact 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.
