After an epic-build-up and some frantic checking of proofs and the distribution of review copies, Clinicality Press can now proudly announce the release of Christopher Nosnibor’s far-out genre-smashing anti-novel This Book is Fucking Stupid in paperback.

On the one hand, This Book is a story of two friends whose lives have taken different paths, a tale of frustration and the social pressure to conform and to succeed. On the other, it’s a social critique and an analysis of reader reviews and the changing face of literary criticism, all with annotations and reflections on both the creative process and the story itself. Confused? You will be.

At the heart of this radical novel that dismantles the very notion of ‘the novel’ lies a thought-provoking work that challenges notions of authorship and the distinctions that separate theory, criticism, fiction and memoir. This Book forges a touching tale of midlife anxiety in the postmodern age of late capitalism and information overload through an ambitous and ingenius synergy of form and content.

Containing additional material not included in either the original Smashwords e-book version or the 50 Shades of Shit Kindle exclusive second edition, the print edition sees Nosnibor really ratchets up the audacious polemic and smashes every aspect of contemporary (pseudo) literary and mainstream fiction and the publishing industry with brain-bending results.

This Book is priced £8.99. It can be purchased via this link, and will be available globally through Amazon in due course.
