In 2011, Nick finally finished writing a novel called Roppongi which he had actually started writing back in 1999, after working for two years in the nightlife district of the same name in Tokyo, Japan. Roppongi was launched
"Please Spike My Drink" is Nick's blog (commenced July 2016). Many moons ago, back in about 2004, Nick used to write a column for a Melbourne, Australia street-press publication called “Fresh Underground Culture Magazine
” (otherwise known as FUCM).
Roppongi is Nick's debut novel. Roppongi is an 'adventure-travel-fiction' story, exploring the crazy and often dangerous world which is living and working as a foreigner in the Roppongi nightlife industry of Tokyo, Japan. The novel follows the (mis)adventures of its travel-addicted protagonist Zack, and in that respect is similar thematically to Alex Garland's The Beach or Gregory David Roberts' Shantaram.
Accordingly, the reader is viscerally transported into the surreal realms of Roppongi, as Zack attempts to come to terms with a series of life-changing events unfolding at rapid pace. In the process, the novel punches through the impossibly glamorous surface of Roppongi and plunges the reader deep into its seedy underbelly ... showing a disturbing side of Japan not often written about in the English language.
