Publisher's Summary

Man Booker Prize, Fiction, 2003

Soon his hole-in-the-wall town is blanketed under a media siege, and Vernon finds himself blamed for the killing. Eulalio Ledesma is his particular nemesis, manipulating things so that Vernon becomes the fulcrum for the bizarre and vengeful impulses of the townspeople of Martirio.

Insanely funny

I hardly know what to say about it even though I've been assaulting my husband with updates as the story unfolds as I listed to it in two days straight.

It's un-put-downable, it deserved the Booker prize 100% & everyone should read this book.

In spite of the sad setting for the book the story unfolds in a bizarre but strangely (very, very strangely) believable form.

The story of Vernon Little epitomises American culture as viewed from the outside. Vernon is 15, we quickly discover he is a caring & fairly intelligent teenager - though very much a teenager. He's accused as accessory to murder on spurious reasoning & distinct lack of evidence & yet the case continues.

I loved this book (in case you didn't guess already). In spite of many "No - I do not believe this" moments - you do believe it. In a world where reality television is as popular as it is there is nothing in this book that surpasses the ridiculousness of reality.

But it does highlight the ridiculousness of reality & that is what makes the book wildly funny.

The narration is superb, it does not let the story down.

Go along for the ride. You will never be sorry you did.
