The Master Blaster by P.F. Kluge.. The saipan is one of the simplest origami figures, a boat. This novel will transport you to a place that is anything but simple, brilliantly realized and peopled.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

""Mr. Kluge, who went to Saipan as a Peace Corps volunteer in 1967 and has made repeated visits ever since, makes a fine alter ego out of the Master Blaster. Both the writer and his troublemaking character are seasoned ironists, expert connoisseurs of corruption."

The New York Times

"As the Master Blaster says of Saipan: ''Americans dream of islands. Islanders dream of America. This is where the dreams converge.'' Delving deep into his rich setting, P.F. Kluge patiently lays out a tale of intrigue and ignorance worthy of Graham Greene."

Stewart O’Nan
