Pangamonium by Zanesh Catkin has had another rave review, this time in Adelaide’s independent InDaily. There was even a teaser on the front page. How could you go past a book that is:

‘Quirky, thought-provoking and completely different from anything else currently on the market, Pangamonium is highly recommended.’ – Samantha Bond, InDaily

Review by OWEN RICHARDSON

FRANCIS Germaine turns up in the fic­titious country of Panga, somewhere in a kind of patchwork Identikit of every Asian country, and at the customs desk finds his suitcase has been mixed up with someone else’s.

The upshot of the confusion lands him in jail, accompanied by a black guy called Easter who has come to Panga to find the treasure apparently buried under his grandfather’s grave. Germaine is the less exalted kind of freelance writer – trade mags, com­pany reports – and he thinks this new development will give him the adven­tures he needs to boost his pride and his bank account.

In the offing are Marman Granthi, a factory owner whose workers are young and unfree and make cheap stuff for rich whities, his Bollywood-­obsessed gatekeeper Daied, and Amila the quietly feisty librarian.

Zanesh Catkin (can that be his real name?) has some good satirical ideas about Panga, but the writing itself can be a little sketchy. The humour is a bit of a hit-and-miss affair as well. But he’s come up with a winning creation in Easter, with his quest and mildly deranged airs; there are clever spoof articles that Germaine has written for magazines ranging from Kids Life Digest to Repressive States Quarterly Lit Review, and the action is sharply paced. Things seem to get a little sticky towards the end, though, when Germaine finds his redemption, but Catkin gives it an impressively peculiar flourish: Germaine’s last article is called “Magic tits or male lactation?”‘

On Saturday 17 March 2012, MidnightSun Publishing and The Hum of Concrete was discussed in the Sydney Morning Herald. It’s great to feel that there is plenty of support out there for us as a fresh new publisher.
