Book Description

Aug. 22 2006
Saya is a blissfully feather-headed Tokyo college girl, talented at doing just enough work to pass the exams at a top-flight university, but ultimately "without a thought in her head." She worked as a hostess in a local bar at night, mindlessly turning tricks with aging businessmen to bring in enough cash to support her addiction to shopping and clubbing. Her freewheeling lifestyle takes an unexpected turn one night when she meets Bogey, a mysterious outsider and gambler who seems to be riding the crest of the wave that is Japan’s economic boom.

"Somehow me and Bogey hit it off right from the word go; or as he put it, in his weird Japanese English, we were a ‘just-meet feeling couple.’" As Saya is ensnared further and further into a world of deceit and high risk, we witness Yokomori’s Tokyo; a city awash in the flood that money can bring and stirred by an undercurrent of soft corruption that threatens to slip an entire society away from its roots. Tokyo Tango is a modern romance that tells an age-old story of forbidden live brought to life under the bright lights of a city in the grip of decay.
