In »Lights Out in Wonderland«, the winner of the 2003 Booker Prize, DBC Pierre, permits his hero one last bacchanal. Having exposed the meaningless of life, this kitchen-sink philosopher has decided to put an end to it all – after partying hard one final time. In Tokyo, in the catacombs of the Tempelhof airport and elsewhere, the hero disintegrates in this quest for the ultimate party only to be reconstructed at the end.
