Virginie Despentes has ripped through the last decades with her abrasive work as a writer and filmmaker. She wrote her first book, Baise-Moi, at 23, while working as a sex worker. The Vernon Subutex trilogy is about a social and financial drop, the decline of a character into a world of drugs and music, porn stars, disillusionment. A satirical vivid journey rooted in the 90s, the result is funny and tragic, a wild ride.
