Reviews

"One of the 10 best books about Japan in 2016 . . . 'The essential Tokyo novel.'"--The Japan Times

"Tokio Whip exults in a discovery that every Tokyoite makes: that the constant sense of disorientation created by a city of such vastness and variety can offer a giddy form of liberation; that one can find oneself in being lost."--Kyoto Journal

"[Arturo Silva] gives us perhaps the first Tokyo novel not by a Japanese that satisfies both in its vision of the Japanese capital and in its vision of what a novel can be... Tokio Whip we come to see, is part of the lineage of great modernist novels about cities."--David Cozy, The Japan Times

"A consistently compelling and deftly crafted novel by an exceptionally gifted novelist, Arturo Silva's Tokio Whip is strongly recommended for both community and academic library Literary Fiction collections."--The Midwest Book Review
