Interview with Andrez by Jay Slayton-Joslin

“When I went to Detroit in 2004 to DJ, the people putting on the party took me for a spin through the inner city. That was a riveting eye-opener for me; there’s nothing like that in contemporary Australia or Japan. Although the recent earthquake and tsunami left a similar legacy, that was after I finished the novel. I remember seeing these ruined, grand old buildings and derelict car factories in Detroit, like the huge Packard plant, and thinking that this was what the novel’s no man’s land, Richmond District, would be like – with the added bonus of constant rain.”
