Barry Lancet

Barry Lancet is a Barry Award­–winning author and finalist for the Shamus Award. He has lived in Japan for more than twenty-five years. His former position as an editor at one of the nation’s largest publishers gave him access to the inner circles in traditional and business fields most outsiders are never granted, and an insider’s view that informs his writing. He is the author of the Jim Brodie series: The Spy Across the Table; Pacific Burn; Tokyo Kill; and Japantown, which received four citations for Best First Novel and has been optioned by J.J. Abrams’s Bad Robot Productions, in association with Warner Brothers. Visit Lancet at BarryLancet.com or on Twitter @BarryLancet.

Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. A paraphrase of something I once heard: As you go the way of life, you will see a great chasm. Jump. It is not as wide as you think.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. The very freshest fish or vegetables.

Q. If you could be any person or thing, who or what would it be?

A. I'd like to be a long-living fly on the wall at the time when artists, musicians, writers, and other creative people find THAT moment; and the same fly when crucial decisions are made by world leaders.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. To my detriment, "Yes, I'll have another."

Q. What is your greatest achievement?

A. Hmmm.
