Reviews

"A large, ambitious work about the lives of outcasts in modern Japan and such troubling themes as ecological destruction, old age, violence and nuclear war."
--The New York Times Book Review

"As is true of Poe and Kafka--two writers whose influence does seem apparent--Abe creates on the page an unexpected impulsion. One continues reading, on and on."
--The New Yorker

"Abe's depiction of the deadly game of survival is hilarious but at the same time leaves us with a chilling sense of apprehension about the brave new world that awaits us."
--Los Angeles Times
