SALON EXCLUSIVE: DBC Pierre reads from ‘Big Snake Little Snake’

Listeners, prepare for a winding tale: a cascade of true stories by DBC Pierre in his new book Big Snake Little Snake. Written while on his way to make a short film with a parrot in Trinidad, the book examines the nature of gambling and aims to shed light on the invisible odds and outrageous chances of everyday life on Earth. This satisfyingly existential book is published by independent press, Cheerio, and available now in all good bookshops.
