DBC Pierre (author of Booker prize winner Vernon God Little) has given up the heavy drugs but still “smokes and drinks like a champ.” Reading tour cohort Dan Rhodes (Timoleon Vieta Come Home) explains that:
while Mr. Pierre had officially disavowed his former habits (hard drugs, harder gambling and stealing other people’s property), his prime time still lasts from sunset to sunrise.
“If you go for a real night out with DCB, you definitely won’t get home before dawn,” he said. “Maybe he should be called Dirty but Comparatively Clean Pierre.”
