DBC Pierre’s 2003 novel “Vernon God Little” is getting the big screen treatment from Werner Herzog.
VGL won the Man Booker Prize when it was released in 2003 and got the Peter Smith seal of approval when I read it in college. Not for class, recreationally, I’m not a nerd.
The story about he aftermath of a school shooting and the title character dealing with a friend being the shooter and the suspicion of his involvement. His follow-up “Ludmila’s Broken English” which I’ve also read, I’m super cultured, is pretty good.
