Fishplums! Get 'A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius' by Dave Eggars. Or, if you've read that, go to The Works, where they are selling American hardback editions of the Martin Amis autobiography, 'Experience', which is one of my favourite books of all time. You can also get 'Vernon God Little' by DBC Pierre, which I suspect you would love, for £2.99.
