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, qis a living, walking, talking, hot steaming pile of pure id.q 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 a€˜Angry Dancea€™ 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 a€˜an atomic bomb of paina€™. Even though he really puts the a€˜antia€™ in anti-hero, you may find Raymond Gunt an oddly likeable character.a€œYou bet!a€ said Sarah. a€œIta#39;ll be the most amazing one youa#39;ve ever had. Ia#39;ll make sure every inch of you is thoroughly de-stresseda€”anything to ... Nobody ever mentions the good side of OxyContin: it makes you feel like Jesus fucking a horse .
