Breakfast with the Borgias

by DBC Pierre

A thoroughly modern nightmare full of promisingly weird characters, this murky tale delivers the growing tension of its genre with also a sense of tongue-in-cheek humour. The writing is vivid and forceful with neat twists and a style that is winningly peculiar.


You selfish child! All you’ve done is invent machines to keep us apart, to lessen empathy. All you’ve done is devote yourself to the strong and the blithe. And look what you’ve left in your wake. Whole masses of souls just like us! This, Harry, is what you’ve earned. It’s what you’ve built, using all your intelligence. Is it hell? Are we hell? Or are you hell? Hell is your self, Harry Panic.
