The Book of Dave

Carl Dévúsh stuff here

The Book of Dave (2006) is a novel by Will Self


The Book of Dave is partly inspired by Walter M. Miller Jr.‘s A Canticle for Leibowitz (1959) and Russell Hoban‘s Riddley Walker (1980, for which Self wrote an ”Introduction” to the Expanded Edition in 2002)


Although Mokni is used to satirical purposes it is not without interest itself.
