Although it means leaving behind the community of disciples who have followed him on his travels and assembled at his raves and gatherings, Vernon Subutex is compelled to return to Paris to visit the dentist.

Once back in the city, he learns that Charles, his old friend from his days on the Paris streets, has died and left him half of a lottery win. But when Vernon returns to his disciples with news of this windfall, it does not take long before his followers start to turn on each other, and his good fortune provokes ruptures in his once harmonious community.

Meanwhile, storm clouds are gathering for Aicha and Celeste: Laurent Dopalet is determined to make them pay for their attack on him, whatever it takes and whoever gets hurt.


And before long, the whole of Paris will be reeling in the wake of the terrorist atrocities of 2015 and 2016, and all the characters in this kaleidoscopic portrait of a city will be forced to a reckoning with each other.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Three addictive, intelligent volumes. Comedy, a way with words, and the collision of registers of language combine to make Vernon irresistible * Le Monde *
Reflecting our chaotic times, Vernon Subutex 3 is a powerful, shocking, captivating work. Despentes completes her epic with a rare mastery. Where will she take us next? * Figaro *
A zigzagging novel that likes to let the intrigue wander, all the better to tug it back by the hair a few portraits later * Liberation *
A final volume even more explosive than the previous ones * Les Inrockuptibles *
An analysis of a startling harshness, which does not lessen the relentless, furious humanity pulsing through every page, every sentence * Telerama *
One of the most striking literary epics of the early 21st century * L'Express *

'He does not say what he is thinking. He is thinking that no-one is solid. Nothing. No group. That is the hardest thing to learn. That we are tenants of a situation, not landlords.'
