The method actors : a novel by Carl Shuker( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Method Actors traces the disappearance of a young, gifted military historian named Michael Edwards from his desk in Tokyo and his sister Meredith's return to the city in search of him. Michael's research into international war crimes trials will take his sister through four hundred years of history, myth and propaganda, love and infidelity, religious transport and hallucination. The Method Actors is set in the flux of Tokyo at the turn of the century. With a cast of wealthy, restless New Yorkers, French kitchenhands, Russian hostesses, Canadian exchange students, Australian drug addicts, High Court judges, reclusive cultivators of hallucinogenic mushrooms, and young Chinese Americans living the high life, The Method Actors leaps from character to character, from past to present, from New York to Wellington to Tokyo. The rape of Nanking, Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, Japan's quarantining of Dutch merchants on manmade islands in the seventeenth century, all entwine to form a comic and often terrifying novel that reveals the dark heart, the centerlessness and moral ambiguity of modern gaijin life in Tokyo
Anti Lebanon by Carl Shuker( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is the Arab Spring and the fate of the Christians of the Middle East is uncertain. The many Christians of Lebanon walk a knife edge, their very survival in this ancestral refuge in doubt. When Hezbollah flex their muscles in a takeover of west Beirut, amid the old shell-scarred sandstone villas, the echoing gunfire, a young Christian wandering the emptied streets is entrapped in an act of violence that will awaken monsters from the civil war and beyond. Anti Lebanon is a cross-genre political thriller and horror story embedded within recent events, featuring a multiethnic Christian family living out the lingering after-effects of Lebanon's war, as it struggles to deal with its phantoms, its ghosts, and its vampires"--Back cover

"Richey Sauer is eighteen years old, beginning his first year at college to escape the dead end of middle-class, small-town life in Timaru, New Zealand. But in a landscape where redemption is a fiction and emotion is cliche, his intense internal world threatens to spill over. After an out-of-control dorm party Richey finds himself in front of a disciplinary committee on a sexual harassment charge for something he can't - or won't - remember. Dropping out of school before he's thrown out, he and his housemates Matt, Nick, and Ursula begin a freefall that forces Richey to face his most destructive desires."--Jacket
