DBC Pierre Profile

DBC Pierre is profiled by Emma-Kate Symons in "The Weekend Australian". His new book, Ludmilla's Broken English will be published in the UK next week. "I can't imagine [the critical reaction]," Pierre says of his second stab at artistic glory. "I don't know anyone personally who would like the new book. And Vernon was exactly the same. I didn't know anybody who would like it. But you have to write for yourself and just respect the nominal reader. "The novel has to be a vehicle and carry you somewhere and not be too indulgent. "But f--- knows what they'll say about it. And it doesn't really matter because the work is done. It was an exercise."
