The Selman-troytt Papers

(2008)
A novel by

 
"Selflessly recording his bodily functions for the advancement of science, Selman-Troytt was a trailblazer. . . . Kudos to P.J. Barrington: Victorian convention will never appear the same again."-Financial Times

"Before Selman-Troytt people had little or no knowledge of their own bodies."-Professor Minskov, Minskov Institute of Stimulus, Minsk

A comic tour de force in the tradition of Franois Rabelais and Jonathan Swift, The Selman-Troytt Papers meticulously presents the life of a fictitious Victorian scientist obsessed with his bodily emissions. The hoax is gloriously comprehensive: there are letters, diaries, extracts from his works, photographs, a bibliography, and even a preface to the (nonexistent) 1951 edition.
