The Alpine Casanovas

The Alpine Casanovas

A novel by

A stunning, sophisticated tour de force of sex, drugs, violence, and death, exploring the lives of those caught between East and West

Beat and Quyn share a Eurasian heritage - both are half Vietnamese, half European. Beat is a rock musician and star of Asian action movies who lives in the U.S., relying on sex, drugs, and alcohol to survive. While filming in Vietnam he fakes his own death and then watches the media circus from the refuge of a chalet high in the mountains. Quyn is the product of an adulterous affair between his father, a bootlegger, and the Vietnamese help. Brought up in the family barn, when Quyn's father self-immolates, Quyn is left itinerant. Returning to his birthplace, he falls in with Benoit, a film director, with secrets of his own. Toni Davidson delivers his most accomplished and mature work to date, a bold, challenging, and violent exploration of the loss of heritage, identity, and community. As Davidson weaves a beguiling and complex web, both men are driven to near madness by the circumstances of their births, culminating in an explosive, shocking climax.
