Vernon God Little

A 21st Century Comedy in the Presence of Death. Winner of the Booker Prize 2003, Whitbread First Novel Award 2003 and the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize 2003

WINNER OF THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2003

WINNER OF THE 2003 WHITBREAD FIRST NOVEL PRIZE

Named as one of the 100 Best Things in the World by GQ magazine in 2003, the riotous adventures of Vernon Gregory Little in small town Texas and beachfront Mexico mark one of the most spectacular, irreverent and bizarre debuts of the twenty-first century so far. Its depiction of innocence and simple humanity (all seasoned with a dash of dysfunctional profanity) in an evil world is never less than astonishing. The only novel to be set in the barbecue sauce capital of Central Texas, Vernon God Little suggests that desperate times throw up the most unlikely of heroes.

´A showpiece of superb comic writing . . . Out of the detritus of a morally bankrupt society, Pierre has fashioned a work of comic art.´ Sunday Telegraph

´In a just world, this ridiculously funny first novel would come free with every television set . . . Not since reading John Kennedy O´Toole´s masterpiece, A Confederacy of Dunces . . . have I laughed so much or felt such sheer delight at the discovery of a wholly fresh comic voice . . . this novel reads like a modern day fairytale.´ Mail on Sunday
