The Alpine Casanovas

(2015)
A novel by

 
The Alpine Casanovas is a stunning, sophisticated tour de force of sex, drugs, violence and death, exploring the lives of those caught between East and West. The Amerasian Beat and the Eurasian Quyn share the same heritage - both are half Vietnamese. Beat is a star of Asian action movies who lives in the US, relying on sex, drugs and acclaim to survive. Whilst 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 a Vietnamese refugee. Brought up in the family barn, when Quyn's father immolates, Quyn is left itinerant. He drifts through corrosive casual jobs before returning to the mountain, building a treehouse close to his birthplace. Toni Davidson follows his acclaimed novels Scar Culture and My Gun Was As Tall As Me with his most accomplished and mature work to date; a bold, challenging and timely 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.
