Summary: Vernon Subutex, ancien disquaire �a la d�erive, ne peut gu�ere compter que sur Alex Bleach pour l'aider �a payer ses factures. Quand celui-ci meurt d'overdose, Vernon est expuls�e de son appartement parisien et doit se faire h�eberger �a droite et �a gauche, sans se douter que tout le monde le recherche afin de mettre la main sur la vid�eo que lui a laiss�ee la pop star avant de mourir. Prix Ana�is Nin 2015.Summary: As if she were a manic, female counterpart to Michel Houellebecq, Virginie Despentes's novels overflow with violence, second-wave feminism, and restlessness to the point of mania. As she declared in her memoir-cum-manifesto, King Kong Theory, "being Virginie Despentes is a more interesting business than anything else going on out there." Her first novel, Baise-moi, was turned into a film full of murderous women and rape; her last novel, Apocalypse b�eb�e (see WLT, Mar. 2011, 60), was shortlisted for the Prix Goncourt and won the Prix Renaudot; and now she is in the middle of a trilogy.
