It’s going to be a wonderful busy month reading.
I currently have 3 Advance Reading Copies from authors and/or publishers that I am waiting for or that are on my bookshelf waiting for me to curl up with them.
The synopsis for “Breakfast in America” :
“An elegy in E-flat for the other Prague.”
Kafkaville. Blake is a pornographer who photographs corpses. Ten years ago, a young man becomes a fugitive when a redhead disappears on a bridge in the rain. Now, at the turn of the millennium, another redhead has turned up in the morgue, and the fugitive can’t get the dead girl’s image out of his head. For Blake, it’s all a game – a funhouse where denial is the currency, deceit is the grand prize, and all doors lead to one destination: murder. In the psychological noir-scape of Kafkaville, the rain never stops, and redemption is just another betrayal away…
The ’90s Prague novel that wasn’t, Louis Armand’s BREAKFAST AT MIDNIGHT takes no prisoners. Seething with film noir intensity, violence, sex, the grimy post-revolution discontent of Prague’s industrial underbelly – the high-tempo prose carries us across landscapes of mind-fuck paranoias, morgue slabs, Oedipal patricides, Amazonian jungle epiphanies…
A parable for the times, BREAKFAST AT MIDNIGHT updates the macabre vision of writers like Paul Leppin and Gustav Meyrink. This is a cult novel waiting to happen.
I’m waiting on 2 books in the mail.
