Overview

Move over Bridger Jones. Nick Twisp is back. In Revolting Youth: The Further Journals of Nick Twisp America's own comic diarist returns with more riotous adventures through the land mines of 21st century adolescence. This sequel to C.D. Payne's epic-length first-novel Youth in Revolt finds love-struck Nick Twisp still on the lam from the law and his parents.

Our 14 year-old-hero (and his multiplying alter egos) now must battle blizzards, back-stabbing aliens, vengeful parents, and school officials determined to schedule him into girls' gym. He conspires to play cupid, journeys south of the border on a secret mission, takes some gunplay lessons from his distraught mom, and still finds time to confide all to his diary while inadvertently wreaking havoc in cyberspace.

First self-published by the author in 1993 and released by Doubleday in 1995, Youth in Revolt has been hailed by many readers as the funniest novel they've ever read. Several critics have compared it to A Confederacy of Dunces. Not widely reviewed, the three-part novel has found a growing audience almost entirely through word of mouth. Sales of the two Doubleday editions now total more than 25,000. Foreign editions have been published in the United Kingdom, Germany, Croatia, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, where it is a best-seller.

Youth in Revolt was produced as a TV pilot by Brillstein-Grey and is in development as a mini-series by MTV. A 10-part radio dramatization of the book will be broadcast in Germany in December; 2000. It also has been produced as a play in San Francisco, Denver; and elsewhere.

Published simultaneously with Revolting Youth is Frisco Pigeon Mambo, which C.D. Payne describes as &#34America's great pigeon novel.&#34This comic saga of escaped laboratory animals is now in development as a Twentieth-Century Fox animated film, to be produced by the Farrelly brothers (Something About Mary).

Payne is also the author of Civic Beauties (1999), a unique "musical" novel that takes a wry look at American presidential politics.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Payne's self-published Youth in Revolt: The Journals of Nick Twisp became an underground sensation and garnered a youthful cult following for hero Nick Twisp, a linguistically precocious 14-year-old diarist. Later published by Doubleday, it has since sold more than 25,000 copies and is in development as a miniseries by MTV. In his latest adventure, Twisp, now independently wealthy as a result of his invention, the hugely successful "Wart Watch," is still disguised as Carlotta Ulansky, living in splendor with his maid, Mrs. Ferguson, and her son, Dwayne, and is once again attending high school in Ukiah, Calif. The deception is necessary because he is being pursued by the FBI for inadvertently burning down half of Berkeley. His girlfriend, the ever-luscious Sheeni Saunders, knows Carlotta's true identity and is accommodating her/his overactive hormones once or twice a week. The saga of teen angst and rebellion unfolds as before in Nick's first-person journal entries. Ever jealous of Sheeni's past flame, Trent Preston, Nick/Carlotta persuades Trent to elope with his present girlfriend, Apurva, to Mississippi, where 16-year-olds are allowed to marry. But Nick's triumph is short-lived. The FBI tracks him down, and he must once again skip town, ending up in Mexico, where he has plastic surgery and changes his identity. Going by the name of Rick S. Hunter, Nick runs into Sheeni in Baja, has an affair with her as Rick and discovers that she's pregnant with his baby. As in the previous volume, the plot becomes increasingly convoluted, but unlike its predecessor, this installment never catches fire. Nick's voice, although witty, seems less 14 than 40. Still, fans of the previous book will want to read this one, and cross-promotion with Payne's Frisco Pigeon Mambo (reviewed above) will help both titles. (Oct.)

Kirkus Reviews
Cult comic-novelist Payne, who self-publishes but also has published with Doubleday, offers the fourth in his revoltingly ridiculous Nick Twisp series. Payne (Youth in Revolt, Doubleday, 1995) has caught on with the Farrelly Brothers (Dumb and Dumber, etc.) and his Frisco Pigeon Mambo (see above) is now in development as an animated film in the teen groove where Powlik, James MELTDOWN Delacorte (352 pp.) Dec. 5, 2000

Praise for Youth in Revolt

"The funniest book you'll read this year." —Los Angeles Times

"This hilariously cynical sex farce about bright teenagers combines creaky Shakespearean plot twists with real insights about growing up in the present chaos." —The Oregonian

    Revolting is ALWAYS fun

    I must admit that I am glad that I found this book and youth in revolt at the same time. I read YIR in two days and Revolting youth in one sitting. I don't know what I would done if I'd had to wait years to read the sequel. Though this book isn't as outragous as YIR, it gives us further insight to america's most dangerous teen. It picks up right were it should. We find out alot more about Sheeni who is the object of affection in nicks life, and we also get to watch him ruin a few more lifes. Like I said, revolting with Nick is always fun...
