Generica

(2001)
(Happiness)
A novel by

 
 
Will this book help you give up smoking? Tell you how to lose those extra pounds? Help you attain inner peace, or improve your sex life? Nah. But it will answer the following questions ...Why would a cartel of drug, alcohol, tobacco and drug-rehab directors have a contract out on Edwin de Valu? (Edwin - the wiry, grey-suited, low-level editor at New York publisher Panderic Press). Why has rage disappeared from the roads and McDonalds gone all alfalfa? How come everyone seems so bloody happyTM? What does it have to do with an epic drunken encounter with Oliver Reed? And, most importantly, who, or what, is Tupac Soiree? When one of those irritating self-help books actually gets it right, then unnatural and worrying times are just around the corner. Here - in a brilliant parody of the lowest form of 'fadism' - Will Ferguson sets out a hysterical, thought-provoking image of a world where the mantra 'Live! Love! Learn!' is on everyone's (smiling) lips.
