Vernon God Little
Updated: Apr 6, 2018
I ain’t gunna lie to you lovelies, I love books, like Lennie loved that fucking puppy. But such love cannot be contained, hence 'Book Bio's' was birthed from my obsessive spine cracking grubby mind. These are my favourite and best books. Books I’ve read more than once, books I’ve stayed up all night with, books I’ve gone without human contact to be with, books that if they were in danger I’d run over innocent bystanders to save.
So you get the picture this week is the gut-wrenching debut and Man Booker prize winner Vernon God Little. Set in modern day central Texas in the aftermath of a terrible event this book is a tale of lust, girls’ underwear and poo.
Knicker obsessed teenager Vernon Little gets into all sorts of misadventures, all the while swearing his arse off. (I already love him.) Set in modern day central Texas in the aftermath of a terrible event this book is a tale of lust, learning and poo.
Why it’s great:
It springs from the book shelf, cracking your head open and spitting in your eye; you wake up three days later with the finished book in your hands, wondering what the hell happened.
Best time to read:
Alone. In three day old underwear.
Dinner Party Prat Fact:
DBC isn’t the authors initials, it stands for “Dirty But Clean” a nickname he picked up.
“God knows I tried my best to learn the ways of this world, even had inklings we could be glorious; but after all that’s happened, the inkles ain’t easy anymore. I mean – what kind of fucken life is this?”
In a word:
