Book DescriptionTwo prostitutes are murdered in Tokyo. Twenty years previously both women were educated at the same elite school for young ladies, and had seemingly promising futures ahead of them. But in a world of dark desire and vicious ambition, for both women, prostitution meant power. Grotesque is a masterful and haunting thriller, a chilling exploration of women's secret lives in modern day Japan.
Editorial ReviewDelves so deep beyond its own shock horror premise that much contemporary crime fiction looks like cheap, exploitative rubbish by comparison utterly absorbing novel that gives as vivid - and disturbing - a picture of contemporary Japan as you could imagine * Metro * "Suicide, paedophilia, incest and murder combine with subtle touches of humour to form a story that will leave you questioning your own morality" * Dazed and Confused * "This is a rich, complex read. Be prepared for a book utterly unlike anything we are used to in crime fiction" * Independent * "It is one of the most unexpected and playful novels to emerge from Japan in recent years...a triumph. In its boldness and originality, it broadens our sense of what modern Japanese fiction can be" * Telegraph * "Uncliched contemporary noir at its most absorbing and relevant...a masterful and haunting achievement" * *
