Smashwords Interview

1. Welcome back! What a surprise! It has been just over a year, and another novel! “The American Deluge.” Quite a title! Does it have anything to do with your first book “Russian Jews Don’t Cry”?
Thank you for your warm welcome. It Does, and it Doesn’t.
This new book has no connection to my first one, or to the characters or storyline of it. And yet,
It does have something to do with it. When the protagonist of the “Russian Jews Don’t Cry” had finally arrived in America, he wasn’t disappointed with the land of his dreams. He had found the ultimate freedom a human being could obtain. But with the years going by, the free country has been gradually transformed into something what he had escaped in the first place — the totalitarian dictatorship. My new novel explores that transformation from a prospective no one yet had done before.
2. Is this a political novel, then?
Yes. But with a twist. It is a political mystery of sorts. I am presenting this novel in “Roman à clef” style, translated from French as “A Novel With a Key.”
Some readers may not be familiar with this form of the realistic fiction genre. Let me briefly dwell on that. There are many reasons why an author may choose the "Roman à clef" format. It can be a writing about controversial topics, or the opportunity to turn the tale the way the author would like it to have gone. That Key would lead the reader to an understanding of what's really happening.

A wise scholar once said, “There is a plan for each one of us outside of our control. From the moment we are born, we are set on our own predetermined road. Anything we would do could help or interfere. It may delay the passage, but we would never stray off its course. We would always come back and move along again.”

The story is written as told by a young man in his twenties, bouncing around the world as a boat set loose in a stormy sea, trying to find his place in it. He hits the biggest jackpot of his life and lets it go away so easy. If reality can turn into bizarre fantasy and the fantasy can morph back into reality, then a twilight transition may exist somewhere on the way.
