APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The fiction debut by reformed wild child DBC Pierre is written in a gonzo and gleefully foul-mouthed vernacular. It’s the satirical story of a shifty Texas teen who’s implicated in a deadly school shooting and embarks on a fouled-up journey to cross the border into Mexico. Darkly hilarious and jarringly entertaining, this twisted send-up of American culture is a one-of-a-kind read. Vernon God Little received the 2003 Man Booker Prize.
