Worst. Person. Ever. by Douglas Coupland

"Let me tell you, the first thing you do when you shit your pants for real is tell nobody.Nobody"

This was the perfect antidote to waiting around in a hospital to have the insides of my nose meddled with. That probably sounds like a strange recommendation. This is the blackest of black comedy. Raymond Gunt (yes that isn't a typo) is a rather shitty human being, shouting at the world and kicking homeless people.

When his hated ex-wife lands him a job as a cameraman on a survivor style show in remote Kirabati with an assistant, life seems to be on the up and up. Taking on said homeless guy as his assistant leads to some unexpected results.

Throw in an atom bomb and you will find life gets very complicated and darkly funny. In any case it was just the pre-anaesthesia antidote I needed.

 4 out of 5 male makeovers are successful.
