Product description


"The nice thing about Tsutsui is that history and modernity combine effortlessly, as do drab reality and fantasy." - Philip Hensher, The Daily Telegraph "Imagine a manic J.G. Ballard, but one with an even darker past to work out." - Nicholas Lezard, The Guardian "Tsutsui stands squarely within the modern and post-modern domain from Franz Kafka to J.G. Ballard" - The Independent

In 1970s Tsutsui began experimenting in a variety of styles, from slapstick and black humour. Winner of various awards including Izumi Kyoka Prize, Kawabata Prize and Yomiuri Literary Prize.
