About the book

Fifteen-year-old Vernon Gregory Little is in trouble. And it has something to do with the recent massacre of 16 students at his high school.

Soon the quirky backwater of Martirio, barbecue capital of Texas, is flooded with wannabe CNN hacks keen to lay the blame at Vernon's feet.

Eulalio Ledesma, in particular, sniffs out his opportunity to make good at Vernon's expense. As the net tightens and desire for a scapegoat reaches fever-pitch, Vernon decides to leave town for Mexico and a date - or so he hopes - with the divine Taylor Figueroa.

Peopled by a cast of freaks, obese law-enforcement officers and cold-blooded chattering housewives, Vernon God Little is a riotous adventure story that cuts a swathe through the heart of contemporary America.

    I love the idea that each book is numbered and limited, they're extra special because they're personalised with those sought-after signatures, and they are not on tip-in pages.
