Vernon God Little

Title: Vernon God Little
Author: DBC Pierre
faber and faber, 2003

I finally got around to reading the Man Booker Prize Winner of 2003, and it says 'Snap, Crackle and Pop' in a big way. Vernon Little is a weirdo whose only friend, Jesus, blows his own head of after murdering a bunch of his class mates. Now, Little gets the blame! The language is hilarious, bull's-eye Starburst-commerical fun, without the sugar but with all the bile!
