A devilishly intelligent new novel by the internationally bestselling author and Prix M(r)dicis winner, Dany Lafferi re.
A black writer from Montreal has found the perfect title for his next book "I Am a Japanese Writer." His publisher gives him an advance on the strength of the title alone. The problem is, he can't seem to write a word of it. He can scarcely summon the energy to put pen to paper, and so he nurses his writer's block by taking long baths, re-reading the works of Japanese poet Basho and engaging in amorous intrigues with rising pop star Midori and her entourage of vampire girls.
Part postmodern fantasy, part Kafkaesque nightmare and part travelogue to the inner reaches of the self, "I Am a Japanese Writer" calls into question everything we think we know about what ? and who ? makes a work of art.
