The shocking psycho-thriller behind the cult Japanese horror film
Renaissance man for the modern age, Ryu Murakami has played drums for a rock group, made movies and hosted a TV talk show. His first novel, Almost Transparent Blue, written while he was still a student, was awarded Japan's most coveted literary prize and went on to sell over a million copies. He is also the author of In the Miso Soup and Piercing, both published in English by Bloomsbury. Ralph McCarthy is the translator of 69, In The Miso Soup and Piercing by Ryu Murakami and two collections of stories by Osamu Dazai.

Leider baut sich die Spannung nur sehr gemächlich auf und man kann sich von sehr früh an denken,wie es ausgehen wird.Die Handlung wirkt manchmal dadurch künstlich,für Fans des Genres jedoch durchaus lesbar.
