Am very happy also that my French noir fiction, Le Feu Au Royaume, is coming out in April through L'Écailler, a publisher located in Marseille. It's a tight noir prose haiku - a tribute to Melville and to early Scorcese (Mean Streets). A classic tragedy - a father looking for his son's murderers - but set in two simultaneous time-frames - the 50s-60s and now. It's about gangsters getting old, but not softer - au contraire. I think violence is the the permafrost of the soul and this is what this novel is about. Maybe I'll translate it in English in the future. Maybe.
I am very late in my Zaporogue publications - I have two poetry collections and a fictional autobiography to put out before december. Time. Life. They don't go well together.
