9780571228904: Lights out in Wonderland

"Lights Out in Wonderland has all the verbal wit and energy of Vernon God Little."―Financial Times

Gabriel Brockwell―aesthete, philosopher, disaffected twenty-something decadent―is thinking terminal. He's decided to kill himself―but not immediately. His destination is Wonderland. The style of the journey is all that's to be decided.

Traveling between London, Tokyo, and Berlin, Gabriel is in search of the bacchanal to obliterate all previous parties. His adventure takes in a spell in rehab, a near-death experience eating a poisonous Japanese delicacy, and finally an orgiastic feast in the bowels of Berlin's majestic Tempelhof Airport. Along the way, Gabriel falls apart, only to reemerge with a new outlook on the world and a mission to right his past wrongs.

Lights Out in Wonderland is an allegorical banquet, a sly commentary on these End Times and the march toward banality, and a joyful expression of the human spirit.
