That's Karpa

Irena Karpa comes from Ukraine. She is 26 years old but already has a few good books behind her. In addition, she plays in her own band. Her books are considered provocative and like her music, are avoiding the mainstream roads.

I just bought her book Pearl Porn and the music CD that came along with it is spinning in my cd-rom right now. Her writing style is compared to Irvine Welsh and Viktor Pelevin but I am still on page 10, so it is early to give opinion.

The novel starts with: "...The huge pink Mercedes, shining and powerful, each morning collected the garbage of our block." Let's see how it ends...
