The navidad incident : the downfall of Matías Guili

Natsuki Ikezawa ; translated by Alfred Birnbaum

In this sweeping magical-realist epic set in the fictional south sea island Republic of Navidad, Ikezawa gives his imagination free rein to re-invent the myths of twentieth century Japan. The story takes off as a delegation of Japanese war veterans pays an official visit to the ex-World War II colony, only to see the Japanese flag burst into flames. The following day, the tour bus, and its passengers, simply vanish. The locals exchange absurd rumours, but the President suspects a covert guerilla organization is trying to undermine his connections with Japan. Can the real answers to the mystery be found, or will the President have to be content with the surreal answers?
