Some brief overview of book

Part social epic, part punk-rock thriller, writerfilmmaker Virginie Despentess Vernon Subutex trilogy continues the Man Booker International Prize shortlisted sprawling tale of an ex-record shop clerks celebrity fortunes and misfortunes. Rock star Alex Bleach might be dead, but he has a secret. Its a secret that concerns several people, but the only person who can unlock it is Vernon Subutex, former record shop proprietor turned homeless messiah and guru, last seen hallucinating and feverish on a bench.

He has tapes of Alex that will shake the world. The hunt is on, and the wolves are closing in. Meanwhile, the cast of lovers and killers in Vernons orbit is in violent disarray.

Acha wants to know the truth behind the death of her mother, the porn star Vodka Satana. And if she finds the bastards responsible, she wants to make them pay, whatever Céleste thinks of her plan. Céleste wants Acha to get a grip and stop hanging around with Subutexs gang of disciples.

The Hyena wants to find the Bleach tapes. She wants to untangle her complicated feelings about Anas, her bosss assistant. And speaking of her boss, she does not want Laurent Dopalet to discover how badly she has double-crossed him.

Big-shot producer Laurent Dopalet wants the Hyena to find and destroy the Bleach tapes. He wants to forget he ever knew Vodka Satana. He wants people to stop graffitiing his apartment with ludicrous allegations.

Above all, he wants people to understand NONE OF THIS IS HIS FAULT. "Virginie Despentes's Vernon Subutex trilogy is the zeitgeistiest thing I ever read . .

. It has dupes and assholes and racists and the people they hate and a stunning diversity of internal monologues and trans true love. Like the last decade, it searches for a happy ending that isnt merely personal and cant find it .

. . These novels with their depth and detail kick TV's sorry ass." Nell Zink, Bustle, "The Best Books Of The 2010s"
