One of her six best books, as told to the Daily Express:
by DBC Pierre

Unputdownable. The descriptions of American society are so physical. It’s about the motivations of children, ruthless media people, paedophiles, policemen. It gets in there and gets dirty. On holiday a friend was laughing out loud. I started reading it over her shoulder and in the end we tore the book in half.
