Man Booker Prize recipient DBC Pierre won effusive praise for his debut novel Vernon God Little. His second novel, Lights Out in Wonderland fulfills the promise of his first with a tale of 21st-century disaffection. Caught up in his decadent lifestyle, 20-something Gabriel Brockwell decides to kill himself. But before he does, he embarks on a quest for Wonderland-a bacchanal to end all bacchanals. His journey takes him around the globe, from London to Tokyo to Berlin, to taste all of life's wildest pleasures, only to emerge with a renewed spirit and a desire to make up for some of the terrible things he's done in his life.
