Summary

The hilarious and outrageous tale of one man’s fight against the decadent excess of the modern world, from the Booker Prize-winning author of Vernon God Little.

Gabriel Brockwell, aesthete, poet, philosopher, disaffected twenty-something decadent, is looking to end it all with one last journey of excess.

Taking in London, Tokyo, Berlin and the Galapagos Islands, Lights Out In Wonderland documents Gabriel Brockwell’s remarkable global odyssey. Committed to the pursuit of pleasure to obliterate all previous parties, Gabriel’s adventure takes in a spell in rehab, a near-death experience with fugu ovaries, a sexual encounter with an octopus, and finally an orgiastic feast in the bowels of Berlin’s majestic Tempelhof Airport.

An allegorical banquet and a sly commentary on the march towards mindless banality, DBC Pierre’s third novel is an unexpectedly joyful expression of the human spirit.
