Hey, mates,

Yep, now confirmed – my second novel One Hundred Years of Vicissitude (http://www.amazon.com/100-Years-Vicissitude-Andrez-Bergen/dp/1780995970) has just been published and is available as a paperback through new imprint Perfect Edge Books.

The novel is now available via Amazon USA – only $14 @ the moment (a $4 discount) in case anyone is… er… vaguely curious. ;)

The Kindle version isn’t yet available, and orders through Amazon UK and Amazon Japan take a little longer. Still, friends of mine in Scotland and San Francisco already have a copy – though I haven’t seen one yet.

What’s the synopsis?

Roughly-speaking, this is the story of identical twin geisha born on the first day of the Great Depression, one of whom loathes the other; it’s 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. Thrown into the milieu are saké, B-29s, Lewis Carroll, Sir Thomas Malory, Melbourne, The Wizard of Oz, and a dirigible – along with the allusion that Red Riding Hood might just be involved…

Some of the action also takes place in Melbourne as this is 5% a sequel/prequel to Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat.

Anyway, if you're bored, take a look-see. And the pretentious-sounding title is tongue-in-cheek, fear not...

:stirthepot:

Cheers,
Andrez
