Cohen, Bernard

Tagged: Author

(1963-    ) US-born author, in Australia since his family moved there while he was an infant. Besides some mainstream work he wrote Snowdome (1998), a complex tale comparing, through parallel storylines, the congested noise-contaminated Sydney of 1998, and a Dystopian future in which Sydney has been depopulated, except for the sound of reproduced voices in museums, giving tourists a viewpoint on the dead past. The title refers to the underlying fakeness of all that is said, by those with the power to make utterances, about the real world. [JC]
