About this book
Paperback edition of DBC Pierre's brilliant Booker Prize-winning satirical novel. This universally acclaimed study of American values - set in Texas in the aftermath of a high school massacre - constantly darts between the uproariously funny and the crushingly touching to tell a riotous and wholly compelling tale. Revelations about Pierre's own life have increased interest in his work significantly since he received the Booker last October. Major marketing spend. "A brilliant comic creation" "The Guardian"
Fifteen-year-old Vernon Gregory Little is in trouble, and it has something to do with the recent massacre of 16 students at his high school. Soon, the quirky backwater of Martirio, barbecue capital of Texas, is flooded with wannabe CNN hacks, eager for a scapegoat.
