A devilishly intelligent new novel by the internationally bestselling author and Prix M&#233;dicis winner, Dany Lafferi&#232;re.<BR><BR>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.<BR><BR>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 &#151; and who &#151; makes a work of art.
