Vernon God Little - FIRST PRINTING

D B C Pierre - HB WORLD FIRST EDITION

London: Faber, 2003, 2003 This is Pierre's revolutionary first novel and it is a multiple winner. First it received a Guardian book award and and then the Booker Prize. This copy is the elusive British world first edition, first impression, hardback. The Faber hardback was printed in a very small edition. This copy is perfect, as new and unread. Unclipped and protected jacket. The true World First Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other editions. Published to great acclaim, including The New Yorker, where it was compared to "Catcher In The Rye". The basis for the comparison is primarily the eponymous character, who, like Holden Caulfield, is a frustrated teenager. If Vernon sounds too intelligent and aware for his age, Joyce Carol Oates quickly points out that the novel's greatest strength is the author's "flawless ear for adolescent-boy speech. To his young narrator, virtually every adjective is 'f-----' and every vision of every adult is laced with repugnance, especially those adults in authority. Vernon is a Holden Caulfield on amphetamines. 'Vernon God Little' is raucous and brooding, coarse and lyrical, corrosive and sentimental in about equal measure and in the right way" (Joyce Carol Oates). DBC Pierre is the pseudonym of Peter Warren Finlay, born in Australia, raised in the US and Mexico. He now divides his time in London, Sydney, and Dublin. DBC stands for "Dirty But Clean". When going after this sought after book make sure the white board cover is nice and clean. This one is pristine. 0.0 0.0 0.0. 1st Edition.. Hardcover. Fine/Fine.

New York, NY: Canongate Books. New in New dust jacket. 2003. not specified>. Hardcover. Winner of the The Man Booker Prize for 2003. Vernon Little, a fifteen-year-old, is in jail. His friend Jesus has just blown away sixteen of his classmates. Vernon was his only buddy and now the town seeks vengeance: Vernon is the target. With a cast of grotesques, freaks, cold-blooded chattering housewives, and Vernon, this is a riotously funny book that puts the lust for vengeance, materialism, and trial by media squarely in the dock. The author's first novel, it illustrates that in modern times innocence and basic humanity may not be enough. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall .

(2003), 8vo, [8], 3-279pp. [1], Pseudonym of Peter Warren Finlay. "Vernon God Little (2003) is a novel by DBC Pierre. It was his debut novel and won the Booker Prize in 2003 and has been adapted as two different stage plays. The title character is a seventeen-year-old boy who lives in a small town in the U.S. state of Texas. When his friend Jesus Navarro commits suicide after killing sixteen bullying schoolmates, suspicion falls on Vernon, who becomes something of a scapegoat in his small hometown of Martirio. Fearing the death penalty, he goes on the run to Mexico. The Booker Prize judges described this book as a "coruscating black comedy reflecting our alarm but also our fascination with America". The character of Vernon as a troubled teenager has drawn comparisons with the character Holden Caulfield in J. D. Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye novel. There are also significant similarities with Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn". The book is written in contemporary vernacular - with the use of foul satirical language and a witty irony. The town in which Vernon lives, Martirio, is ironically given the Spanish word for martyrdom." Wikipedia

VERNON GOD LITTLE: A 21ST CENTURY COMEDY IN THE PRESENCE OF DEATH

Pierre, D. B. C.

Faber and Faber, 2003. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. A highly collectible tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscriptions, unclipped dustjacket, this is not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. The surprise winner of the 2003 Man Booker Prize, DBC Pierre's debut novel, Vernon God Little, makes few apologies in its darkly comedic portrait of Martirio, Texas, a town reeling in the aftermath of a horrific school shooting. Fifteen-year-old Vernon Little narrates the first-person story with a cynical twang and a four-letter barb for each of his diet-obsessed townsfolk. His mother, endlessly awaiting the delivery of a new refrigerator, seems to exist only to twist an emotional knife in his back; her friend, Palmyra, structures her life around the next meal at the Bar-B-Chew Barn; officer Vaine Gurie has Vernon convicted of the crime before she's begun the investigation; reporter Eulalio Ledesma hovers between a comforting father-figure and a sadistic Bond villain; and Jesus, his best friend in the world, is dead--a victim of the killings. As his life explodes before him, Vernon flees his home in pursuit of a tropical fantasy: a cabin on a beach in Mexico he once saw in the movie Against All Odds. But the police--and TV crews--are in hot pursuit.
