Life for Sale

Brand: Penguin Classics   |   Status: Hết hàng

Yields a rare glimpse of the pulp-fiction flipside that partnered the rhapsodic and mystical Mishima... grotesque, melodramatic, spectacular, utterly silly ― The Times

It's funny and horrific and curious and thoroughly entertaining and should win Mishima a new generation of fans ― The Independent

There is a place in life for the exhilarating, surreal and sometimes downright silly. This novel ticks all the boxes ― Spectator

Succeeds in capturing vividly the bathos of the self-pitying modern nihilist... the absurdity of life is conveyed through the tropes of pulp fiction and manga comics ― The New Statesman

An engaging all-action satire ― The Guardian

A writer of immense energy and ability ― Time Out

'The best book I've read this year ... darkly comedic and full of tension and surprise' Marina Abramovic

'Life for sale. Use me as you wish. I am a twenty-seven-year-old male. Discretion guaranteed. Will cause no bother at all.'

When Hanio Yamada realises the future holds little of worth to him, he puts his life for sale in a Tokyo newspaper, thus unleashing a series of unimaginable exploits. A world of murderous mobsters, hidden cameras, a vampire woman, poisoned carrots, code-breaking, a hopeless junkie heiress and makeshift explosives reveals itself to the unwitting hero. Is there nothing he can do to stop it? Resolving to follow the orders of his would-be purchasers, he comes to understand what life is worth, and whether we can indeed name our price.
