Revenge

Editorial reviews

Revenge

Ogawa brings into relief the silent and often disturbing interconnectedness of things, living or not. And she ensures that her tales will long linger in the mind.

Consume them independently at your own peril, but taken together, the eleven dark tales contained in Revenge by Yoko Ogawa make for a single, delectable dish. One best served cold, of course.

Ogawa stands on the shoulders of giants, as another saying goes. But this collection may linger in your mind — it does in mine — as a delicious, perplexing, absorbing and somehow singular experience.
