9780704371644: Tofu Landing

Declan Twist moves into The Posse's East London flat at the same time as Tristan Russell, an indie-rock star whose love for hard drugs is matched only by his taste for young groupies. By comparison, Declan's life is lacking direction: he reviews films on a little-watched cable-television show and writes occasionally about art. He believes that he is falling in love with Juliet, a wealthy project manager at a large pharmaceutical company who prefers to date men half her age.

About the Author:

Evan Maloney attended university in Melbourne, Australia. He lives in Poland with his wife and daughter. He has worked as a film and art critic for more than ten years and now works closely with several European film production houses. His first feature film Greener Grass is currently in pre-production in Moscow. Tofu Landing is his first novel.

Review:

'The east London art scene colliding with a Pete Doherty figure (who flees a party when one of the guests falls to his death) is easy material for satire. It is to Maloney's credit that he doesn't take this easier route but creates a nuanced and intriguing character in Declan Twist. Declan's uncertainty about his life keeps him tied to the Posse, while his love of art means that he sees through the pretension all around him. The witty and acerbic descriptions of clubs, youth television and nights spent getting high together (and the sex that results) are vividly told, everything rings true, it's a compelling novel.' - Bookmunch 'Take the idea of a bunch of people that live for pleasure and put it in a book that charts their excesses and eventual crash to earth and you have Tofu Landing in a nutshell. But add to that mix some characters that reflect back at the reader celebrities that they would recognise and a culture of drug taking they might have suspected existed and you have a mix that is much more challenging.' - Inside Books
