New David Peace book coming soon

David Peace's new book TOKYO YEAR ZERO has just arrived in proof copy, and is out in September published by Faber. This is the first book of his that has moved away from his native Yorkshire and after THE DAMNED UNITED'S slow-burn success last year should get much more attention than his previous books. As one of the few British writers currently writing or saying anything interesting, Peace deserves the exposure; if you haven't read him, he's on the same lines as James Elroy's fiction or Gordon Burn's non-fiction. There's a good piece by him here which should get you up to speed on his writing.
