Vernon God Little by DBC Pierre

Vernon God Little tells the story of Vernon Little, a shiftless, unassuming boy in a small Texas town. When his best friend, Jesus, goes on a murder spree at the high school before turning the gun on himself, the town needs a living scapegoat. They decide the Vernon must have been an accessory. Vernon narrates the story in his own inimitable style, and where the truth lies isn't quite clear. DBC Pierre's debut novel is a wicked satire of white-trash America with its penchant for sensationalism, conspiracies, and Jerry Springer-like justice. The Telegraph says, "Simply as an indictment of American justice, Vernon God Little is chilling and hilarious. But the novel is much, much more than that. It is a showcase of superb comic writing, every sentence turned with loving care."
