About The Book

Will Self has been praised by The New York Times Book Review as “a high-powered satirical weapon” and Cock & Bull is one of his most outrageous works of fiction

“Cock: A Novelette” is the story of a woman who grows a fully functional penis. “Bull: A Farce” is the story of a man who acquires a vagina and all its companion parts. There are, however, complications. Cock & Bull, the book that introduced an enfant terrible of English letters to an American audience, has quickly become a classic of blistering satire.

“Comic fantasy [that] offers pointed comments on the bewildering and sometimes terrifying forms of contemporary sexual expression . . . deliciously funny.” –New York
