Lights Out!

Lights Out in Wonderland
DBC Pierre
It’s just what postmodernism should be: ironic, fun, footnoted and dripping with disestablishmentarianism. Drawing from David Foster Wallace, Don Delillo and Hunter S. Thompson style hijinks for the 21st century, Lights Out in Wonderland is a drug-soaked and fatalistic bacchanal. Our hero, Gabriel Brockwell, is planning one last bender before committing suicide and he pulls his best buddy, a chef called Smuts, along down with him. From fornicating in a fish tank to koala confit, this is one helluva ride.
