A fantasy fiction tale from first-time writer/publisher Gopal Mukerjee.

Self-declared private eye Allen Ginsberg is a pleasure-loving slacker with ‘nothing resembling drive or ambition’. But that’s about to change. There’s a stranger in town, a clownish and vaguely sinister Indian named Gyani, with a tantalizing PI gig on offer. The gig is just what the doctor ordered, except it isn’t. Ginsberg soon finds himself trapped in a vortex of bizarre rituals and life-threatening ordeals that defy explanation. When all is finally revealed, Ginsberg must accept his new identity and prevent a planetary holocaust with the help of his cat Little Boy, a carrier pigeon name Kierkegaard and a ‘wrasslin’ alligator name Deklus Potreem.

The Author

Gopal Mukerjee is a writer, imagist and provocateur of Indian origin. He was born in Mumbai and was raised in India, Britain, and the United States, where he graduated with a degree in Mathematics and Philosophy. Today he divides his time between Europe, the US and India, where he delights in all things subversive and gustatory.

The Publisher

Gopal and his sister Amita Mukerjee founded Revenge Ink to present new types of narrative that are edgy, progressive and bold. They are challenging the conventions of the mainstream, highbrow publishing industry by show-casing cutting-edge works from subversive new writers. Based in London, Revenge Ink will promote strong voices and take on emotionally driven and inspiring projects to encourage edgy ‘outside-the-box’ thinking. Gopal and Amita will publish works that reflect the world we live in, rather than conform to expectations or stereotypes, based on ethnicity or religion.

The first two novels, The Armageddon Mandala and Ugly Duckling, have a scabrous straight-talking tone and voice-driven approach that most mainstream publishers wouldn’t readily touch. Written by the founding pair, the two books have already received positive reviews from national broadsheets in India and have also been openly endorsed by popular writers, like Shobhaa De, a well-respected columnist and novelist.
