So very proud to have a quote on the back cover of Tobacco-stained Mountain Goat author Andrez Bergen’s forthcoming book, One Hundred Years of Vicissitude. And what an absolutely stunning cover it is!
My quick take on the book:
When Andrez Bergen burst onto the scene in 2011 with Tobacco-Stained Mountain Goat, one of the most wonderfully creative and unique books I’ve had the pleasure to read, I wondered how he could ever possibly top it. Well hold on, ladies and gentlemen, because with One Hundred Years of Vicissitude Bergen is once again taking readers on a wildly enchanting journey down the rabbit hole to an ethereal world rich with Japanese and pop culture, one which seamlessly melds history and the hereafter. Prepare to have your mind opened… then blown.
