I know a lot of people find Will Self to be very smug, and I concur, but I have to say I've enjoyed a couple of his works, plus I always find him to be a voice of reason on the weekly BBC political discussion programme Question Time.
I particularly enjoyed The Book of Dave, although this may be because both Self and I have an interest in the philosopher John Gray, whose work Straw Dogs and Black Mass clearly influenced it. It's written in chapters which alternate from mostly straight prose and a kindof phonetic cockney language spoken by a civilisation in the future. Similar I suppose to Burgees' Clockwork Orange, Palahniuk's (dreadful) Pygmy or most similarly Ridley Walker by Russell Hoban.
However, I should admit that I really enjoyed The Quantity Theory of Insanity, in particular the titular short-story, so perhaps I'm not the best person to offer you advice
