Will Self


Will Self has made a record number of appearances on Have I Got News for You as well as being one of the archetypal Grumpy Old Men. Columnist and reviewer, he has produced several compilations of his work as well as his fictions. For Self nothing is sacrosanct and his satirical gaze can land anywhere, even on Self himself.
