Product description

Review

"A major novel by Tomoyuki Hoshino, one of the most compelling and challenging writers in Japan today." --Thomas LaMarre, William Dawson Professor of East Asian Studies, McGill University

"Since his debut, Hoshino has used as the core of his writing a unique sense of the unreality of things, allowing him to illuminate otherwise hidden realities within Japanese society." --Yuko Tsushima, author, "Mountain of Fire: Account of a Wild Monkey"

"Reading Hoshino's novels is like traveling to a strange land all by yourself . . . But then you take a deep breath and a smell you've never encountered enters your nose, a wind you've never felt brushes against your skin, and an unknown substance rains down upon your head." --Mitsuyo Kakuta, author, "Woman on the Other Shore"

""Lonely Hearts Killer" is a fascinating story with a good translation, and it's a book that is well worth checking out.It's not always easy to get your head around what Hoshino is trying to say, but it's certainly a welcome change to some of the cherry-blossom-tinted (or blood-soaked) J-Lit around at the moment. Do try it." --"Tony's Reading List"

About the Author

Tomoyuki Hoshino made his literary debut in Japan in 1997 and is the author of 12 novels, including "Fantasista," which won the Noma Bungei award in 2003, and "The Mermaid Sings Wake Up," which won the Mishima Prize in 2000. He is also known in Japan for his nonfiction essays on art, politics, social issues, and sports--particularly soccer.
