About the Author

Keizo Hino (1929-2002) was born in Tokyo and accompanied his parents to Korea while the country was under Japanese control. After his return to Japan, he worked as a foreign correspondent for Yomiuri Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper. He later wrote several novels, his work being compared to that of J. G. Ballard.

Reviews

A novel. . . that forces us to contemplate the dark side of our cities.
In this novel, the metropolis of Tokyo is a living creature. Within its inner workings, skyscrapers and massive overpasses alike are born and grow, continually breathing, panting, trembling, maturing, and developing cracks. --Masashi Miura
