Description:
Vernon Subutex was once the proprietor of Revolver, an infamous music shop in Bastille. His legend spread throughout Paris. But by the 2000's, with the arrival of the internet and the decline in CD's and vinyl, his shop is struggling. When it closes, Subutex is out on a limb, with no idea what to do next. Nothing sticks. Before long, his savings are gone, his employment benefit is cut, and when the friend who had been covering his rent dies suddenly, Vernon Subutex finds himself first relying on friends with spare sofas, and finally, when that dries up, alone and out on the Paris streets. But Vernon Subutex has one final card up his sleeve. Even as he is stretching out his hand to beg from strangers in the street for the first time, a throwaway comment he previously made on Facebook is taking the internet by storm.
