This is the story of John Self, consumer extraordinaire. Rolling
around New York and London, he makes deals, spends wildly and does
reckless movie-world business, all the while grabbing everything he

pornography, a mountain of junk food and more. Ceaselessly
inventive and thrillingly savage, this is a tale of life lived
without restraint; of money, the terrible things it can do and the
disasters it can precipitate.
