Revenge, by Yoko Ogawa
Acclaimed Japanese author Yoko Ogawa returns with Revenge, a recently-translated collection of short stories. Offering stories as beautiful as they are creepy and twisted, these eleven gothic tales take a steady-paced walk into the most dark and macabre corners of the mind. While each story stands on its own, several stories interconnect in various unexpected ways and offer additional dimensions to these haunting and bizarre tales. Despite originally being written in Japanese, this collection maintains an effective voice and style for the enjoyment of western audiences.
