9780060733865: The Basic Eight: A Novel

Flannery Culp wants you to know the whole story of her spectacularly awful senior year. Tyrants, perverts, tragic crushes, gossip, cruel jokes, and the hallucinatory effects of absinthe -- Flannery and the seven other friends in the Basic Eight have suffered through it all. But now, on tabloid television, they're calling Flannery a murderer, which is a total lie. It's true that high school can be so stressful sometimes. And it's true that sometimes a girl just has to kill someone. But Flannery wants you to know that she's not a murderer at all -- she's a murderess.

From the Publisher:

"Dazzlingly funny...covertly lyrical, and absolutely without parental supervision, The Basic Eight manages to be amoral and humane simultaneously." --Mark O'Donnell, author of Let Nothing You Dismay and Getting Over Homer

"Imagine being young, messed up, and too smart for your own good. Flannery Culp is all three. I followed her adventures with admiration and envy because Daniel Handler is one of the sharpest, funniest, and best writers around." --Kit Reed, author of Weird Women, Wired Women

"Flannery Culp is Holden Caulfield in drag, forty-five years later." --Peter Lefcourt, author of The Woody and Abbreviating Ernie

"If you can resist Daniel Handler's hell-raising powers, fair warning: A wicked young century starts here--without you." --Lois Gould, author of Mommy Dressing and Medusa's Gift

"A funny, unique novel that single- handedly returns high-school revenge fantasies to their rightful owners." --Joanna Torrey, author of Hungry

"Like no other book, The Basic Eight demands to be read twice. Do." --Stephin Merritt, lead singer of the Magnetic Fields

Book Description Ecco, 2006. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Flannery Culp, a world-weary high school senior, is primed to take on the few remaining obstacles that stand between her and the rest of her life. If only things hadn't gotten out of control and she had stayed away from the absinthe, then she wouldn't be a topic on daytime talk shows or incarcerated.
