A darkly riotous, superbly fast-talking adventure, adapted from the Booker Prize-winning novel.
Vernon Little is fifteen years old and lives with his mother in Martirio, a flea-bitten Texan town. His best friend just massacred sixteen of their classmates before killing himself. The town wants vengeance and turns its sights on Vernon, who is arrested at the start of the story.
