"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"
