Music of “Immortal Forever” Part 1

Posted in Immortal Forever with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2015 by Kaden Brown

Near the beginning of the book Svetlana is unhappy that someone is humming the tune of an officially banned piece of music. This is in early 1958. I shall not reveal exactly who is humming, suffice to say the music of concern is that of Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 7 Op. 60 “Leningrad”.

Written from (and during the siege of) Leningrad it was a massive symbol of resistance to Nazism and militarism.  It later became apparent that Shostakovich interpreted his masterpiece as both a criticism of the Nazis and Stalinism. However, the symphony had by then become an inspiration to many Soviet people.

In 1948 Shostakovich was denounced in an “anti-formalism campaign” and his works banned. Svetlana hears someone humming part of the tune (near the end of the piece) whilst visiting her father and is furious that anyone would be flouting the decrees of the Supreme Soviet. She is a good Communist and believes in the cause of the proletariat!

Tobacco - poison...

Soviet poster from 1957 “Tobacco – poison…”. Shostakovich refused to stop smoking. He died of lung cancer.

With Stalin’s death in 1953 the public could again listen to Shostakovich, but it was not until May 1958 when he was officially “rehabilitated” under the new Khrushchev regime. Later in the book, Svetlana struggles to understand the liberalisation of policy and this symbolises the struggle between socialism and liberalism, as, of course, does her struggle with – and tragic attraction to – vampirism.

The core theme of the book is this conflict, using the theme of the needs and obligations of humanity (representing the ideological discipline and determination of Stalinism and Communism) versus the apparent individual freedom and total breakdown of responsibility to society (representing western-style liberalism).

Whilst this is a classical piece of music (and the longest of Shostakovich’s work), it is probably not my own choice of vampire-related music. I prefer the heavy metal genre (obviously there is none here, given the time period of the book – 1958-1960-ish), but hey, this is my book and I’ll play what I want to.

So look forward to jazz galore as Svetlana struggles to comprehend the social changes happening around her…

Draft Blurb For “Immortal Forever”

Posted in Immortal Forever, Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2015 by Kaden Brown

Immortal Forever – a literary fiction

Moving to Zelenograd, a small city northwest of Moscow, is a new start, an opportunity for career progress. Svetlana, a militia member seconded from the capital is excited and proud to be serving the socialist cause.

Her husband Anton, is absent in the east, crime is rising, and Khrushchev’s reforms are taking their toll. All is well until she crosses paths with unsavoury Soviet deputies exploiting their new freedoms, and a criminal underworld invigorated by endemic corruption and dramatic social change following the official denouncements of Stalinism.

immortalforever_promo_colorSvetlana battles to hold true to her ideals as those around her fall prey to the gangs and social liberalisation. She seeks solace in new love, whilst pressing for greater investigation of the crimes that rock the city.

A deathly darkness is approaching that she is unable to stop, without betraying the very people, and the very system she has sworn to protect.

A startling literary fiction that commentates on the defence of Stalinism in the face of an onslaught of freedom for which even the most devoted will give their soul for just one taste.

Counter poses the viciousness and attractiveness of liberalism with the order and discipline of a dour socialist society struggling to maintain itself in the face of external forces.

A subtle expose of Soviet life and the struggle of one woman to keep mind and soul together.

A critique of the competition between socialism and liberalism by way of a vicious and blood-soaked vampire novel in which  one woman’s life and family are destroyed, at the same time giving her hope, before crushing all her dreams and her soul in a nightmare of violence and gore.

Immortal Forever will be available in a couple of years time – so don’t get too excited just yet. At roughly 500 pages the novel will also have its own twitter page @immortal4eva (https://twitter.com/immortal4eva). The picture above, will probably be the cover, or I may use an original picture based on an idea represented in a previous image (you may find it in a previous posting, or somewhere in the right-hand menu column).

Are you ready to open your mind?


Here is what one reviewer had to say about “Wear a Flower In Your Hair“:

“It’s a visceral. It’s gripping. It’s soul-stirring. As Sadie Mae Glutz recounted her life in her own words, I felt the full gamut of emotions. This is an American tragedy of the highest order. A mirror maze of contradictions and red herrings.
Yes, this is a bold and uncompromising vision from Kaden Brown. A master stroke of creative writing. You owe it to yourself to check it out. It’s not easy reading, but then again, it’s not meant to be. Two thumbs up from me!”
