Three enigmatic words uttered by a dying elderly man, in Berkeley, California, lead to the search for a mysterious old play. In the course of events, a mugger snatches the small camera with which the text was photographed (most probably in a murky archive in England). Trem, the main character of the book, manages to retrieve the camera and, thanks to his girlfriend, is poised to create a sensation in the literary world with his bombshell discovery of the identity of the old play. At the same time, Icksy, a friend of Trem’s, is still hanging on to the old ideals that held sway in radical Berkeley in the ’60s and ’70s, and he is willing to sabotage military operations and blow up shipments of armaments in sheer frustration at the general state of things in the USA. And then there are also Micky and Nitroba, two highly enigmatic characters at first. Let us just say that the very special location of their apartment is not conducive to a correct assessment of the various situations they hear about…not at all.

Marcos Sequoia was born in Switzerland. After his studies in English and French at the Basel University, he moved to California, where he taught languages at high schools and junior colleges. He started writing poems, which he later translated into his native Swiss-German dialect. They were published in 2015 under the title Words Got in My Way.

He has also collaborated on a film script, and written a play and some short stories. After travelling and staying in different European and Asian countries, he returned to Switzerland. The Darling Bombs of April is his first novel.
