Vernon God Little
Vernon Gregory Little has secrets, but none of them – or so he assumes – have anything to do with the recent massacre of 16 students at his high school. This novel depicts simple humanity in a complex world and poses questions about culpability and priorities in a hypocritical, media-saturated world.
