The Unbearable Lightness of Being a Prawn Cracker - hilarious restaurant reviews by Booker nominee Will Self 'Most food writing and restaurant criticism is concerned with the ideal, with how by cooking this, or dining there, you can somehow ingurgitate a new - or at any rate improved - social, aesthetic and even spiritual persona. I aimed to turn this proposition on its head, and instead of commenting on where and what people would ideally like to eat I would consider where and what they actually did: the ready meals, buffet snacks and - most importantly - fast food that millions of Britons chomp upon in the go-round of their often hurried and dyspeptic lives.' In this selection from his wickedly funny New Statesman Real Meals column, Will Self reviews the chains where most of us go to eat (KFC, Greggs, Yo! Sushi, Pizza Express and their like), delves into the ubiquitous Thai meal and Chicken Tikka Masala, and experiences hotel breakfasts, frozen TV dinners and airline food on our behalf. These are restaurant reviews of the kind you've never read before. Will Self is the author of nine novels including Cock and Bull; My Idea of Fun; Great Apes; How the Dead Live; Dorian, an Imitation; The Book of Dave; The Butt; Walking to Hollywood and Umbrella, which was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize. He has written five collections of shorter fiction and three novellas: The Quantity Theory of Insanity; Grey Area; License to Hug; The Sweet Smell of Psychosis; Design Faults in the Volvo 760 Turbo; Tough, Tough Toys for Tough, Tough Boys; Dr. Mukti and Other Tales of Woe and Liver: A Fictional Organ with a Surface Anatomy of Four Lobes. Self has also compiled a number of nonfiction works, including The Undivided Self: Selected Stories; Junk Mail; Perfidious Man; Sore Sites; Feeding Frenzy; Psychogeography; Psycho Too and The Unbearable Lightness of Being a Prawn Cracker.

Portia de Rossi wog nur noch 38 Kilogramm, als sie am Set einer Hollywood-Produktion zusammenbrach. Nach außen hin war sie blond, schlank und schön, glamourös und erfolgreich. Doch innerlich war sie fast tot. Sie beschreibt unaufgeregt und eindringlich, wie der Druck Hollywoods, dünn zu sein, in Kombination mit ihrer geheim gehaltenen Homosexualität dazu führte, dass sie sich in ihrer Haut nie wohlfühlte und immer tiefer in die Magersucht hineinrutschte. Das Abnehmen wurde für sie zur einzigen Möglichkeit, Macht und Kontrolle über ihr Leben zu haben, bis es zu einer Krankheit wurde, die sie beinahe tötete und ihre Familie zerstörte. In ungewöhnlich offenen, mutigen Worten erzählt de Rossi mit erzählerischem Feingefühl ihre Geschichte und lässt uns tief in ihre Seele und ihr Leben als Hollywoodstar blicken. Sie lässt uns die verquere Logik ihres täglichen Strebens nach Perfektion verstehen und die Anstrengung wertschätzen, die sie zur Überwindung ihrer Probleme aufwenden musste. Eine erschreckende und zugleich hoffnungsvolle Geschichte für alle, die auf Kriegsfuß mit sich selbst oder ihrem Körper stehen.
