|Andrez Bergen - One Hundred Years of Vicissitude|
Tokyo-based Australian writer Andrez Bergen here, author of Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat recently finished his second novel, One Hundred Years of Vicissitude, this time with the focus on Japan, from 1929 on into the near future (plus a little bit of Melbourne in the '70s & '80s). A mix of surrealism, mystery, a smattering of dystopia/steampunk, a tad hardboiled, and there's sci-fi (kind of) in there as well.
This one will be published (in paperback & ebook) via new imprint Perfect Edge Books, in the second half of 2012.
Here's the synopsis:
"First up, a disclaimer. I suspect I am a dead man. I have meagre proof, no framed-up certification, nothing to toss in a court of law as evidence of a rapid departure from the mortal coil. I recall a gun was involved, pressed up against my skull, and a loud explosion followed."
Thus begins our narrator in a purgatorial tour through twentieth-century Japanese history, with a ghostly geisha who has seen it all as a guide and a corrupt millionaire as her reluctant companion.
