Our friend from Tokyo, Andrez Bergen, has just published his fourth novel, Depth Charging Ice Planet Goth.
The book is a fascinating coming of age tale told from the point of view of a teenage girl in 1980s Melbourne, Australia. I read a preview copy recently and found that it held my interest. Things are not always what they seem in this story, but pay attention from page one and you'll have a good idea of what's going on. It's different from his prior novels but it has the same style, with lots of pop culture references. It is available on Amazon here; get it on Kindle for only $2.99!
Here is some of the publicity for this book:
"What I remember of '80s flick Heathers with a little bit of Fight Club, slamming into This Boy's Life and Dogs in Space — while Jimmy Stewart's Harvey looks on."
