We're all on televison...

Percival Everett is responsible for some of the funniest and most incisive satirical fiction written in those United States for many a long whiles. His most successful and celebrated novel, 'Erasure,' is peculiarly prescient - involving, as it does, the willing descent into quasi-celebrity hell of an academic writer tortured into artifice by a wholly indifferent audience. All Everett's novels exhibit the same invention and ambition; the same dedication towards exploring the possibilities of language and the limitless boundaries of these possibilities. In short, there is no-one quite like him.
