Description - Sulphuric Acid by Amelie Nothomb

Tired of traditional reality shows, the television audience wants blood, literally. One day, while out taking a walk in the Jardin des Plantes, Pannonique finds herself piled into a cattle-truck. Suddenly, it seems, anyone can be picked up and hauled off to the studio without a moment's notice.Sulphuric Acid tells the story of this reality TV death camp which has become the nation's obsession - an amoral spectacle played out through the media. Following the shifting fortunes of Pannonique and her nemesis it is a blackly funny and shocking satire about the modern predilection for celebrity and reality television.
