One book gets the award for both these honours.

"Vernon God Little"

The finest debut I've ever read. The first Line should blow you away. I had tears of laughter streaming down my face by the middle of the first chapter.
The atmosphere is kept through the entire book I couldn't put it down.

"It’s hot as hell in Martirio, but the papers on the porch are icy with the news.”

Might not read well here but it blew me away when I picked it up.

You've got to read the book its stunning.
