  • DBC Pierre

    DBC Pierre lives in County Leitrim, Ireland. Vernon God Little, his debut novel, won the MAN Booker Prize and the Whitbread First Novel Award. Ludmila's Broken English, his second, was published in 2006.

“Brilliant, funny and very useful . . . Pierre gives pragmatic advice on writing, from plotting to organizing the files on your desktop.”
- Times Literary Supplement
“Merging anecdote-driven theory with a freewheeling, maverick energy, Release the Bats offers a turbocharged manifesto of sorts that is fully in sync with Pierre’s established public persona of someone hitting his conversational stride halfway between his sixth and seventh sundowner.”
- Ben Myers, New Statesman
