Heaven

Author's Home Country: 
New Zealand
Category: 
Crime Fiction

Heaven was written in 1994. I'd just finished Pack of Lies which was narrated by a woman who lies: it occurred to me that she might reveal at the end of the narrative that she wasn't even a woman. That doesn't happen, but it did start me thinking. The eponymous central character of Heaven is a transvestite, and flicks between different worlds: male / female, night / day, past / present. That's pretty much the story.

Shirker

Author's Home Country: 
New Zealand
Category: 
Crime Fiction

"Shirker, Chad Taylor's first ever novel published in the UK, is a compelling and disturbing literary thriller set in downtown Auckland. Ellerslie Penrose is a man dealing in futures who becomes lost in the past.

Penrose's descent into the underworld is compulsive and chaotic - and the further he falls, the less he understands. But it is only through this descent that he can finally find what he is looking for.
Surreal and labyrinthine, Shirker's cool and enthralling prose establishes Chad Taylor as one of New Zealand's finest voices."
