From the Man Booker Prize-winning author of Vernon God Little, a humane, deeply empathetic starburst of a satire; the most moving and entertaining exaggeration of the fearful nightmare of trying to raise a kid now.
DBC Pierre is author of the novels Vernon God Little, Ludmila's Broken English and Lights Out In Wonderland, plus the picture book for distracted adults Petit Mal and the Hammer novella Breakfast With The Borgias. The novel Vernon God Little sold in 43 territories and won the Man Booker Prize, the Whitbread Prize for Best First Novel, the Bollinger Wodehouse Everyman Award and the James Joyce Award from University College Dublin. In 2016 Faber & Faber launched Release the Bats, a memoir and practical guide to breaking through in fiction without killing yourself. Pierre is a regular contributor to New Philosopher magazine and divides his time between the UK and Ireland.
