Apparently this is warped book week. This book is quite short, but any longer would be too much. In the vein of Incompetence, everything that can happen to him does. Everything that can go wrong, does. He gets his testicules injected with saline, half his leads die, his gf (of sorts) cheats on him... But it is a great book. It's funny, a decent look at today's society and what is wrong (or is it?) with it.

Just read "Sulphuric Acid" by Amélie Nothomb. I read it in English, but presumably you could find a French copy as well. English version's at the library. Short, took me a couple of hours. Freaky in a "Oh God this is so incredibly possible" way that I think you'd appreciate.
