Audition by Ryu Murakami
Book DescriptionIn this gloriously over-the-top tale, Aoyama, a widower who has lived alone with his son ever since his wife died seven years before, finally decides it is time to remarry. Since Aoyama is a bit rusty when it comes to dating, a filmmaker friend proposes that, in order to attract the perfect wife, they do a casting call for a movie they don t intend to produce. As the resumes pile up, only one of the applicants catches Aoyama s attention Yamasaki Asami a striking young former ballerina with a mysterious past. Blinded by his instant and total infatuation, Aoyama is too late in discovering that she is a far cry from the innocent young woman he imagines her to be. The novel s fast-paced, thriller conclusion doesn t spare the reader as Yamasaki takes off her angelic mask and reveals what lies beneath."

Instead, she turned to fiction, where her stories and novels became artistic "distillations" of her secret diaries. This book deals with her personal struggle.

Sixty-Nine, Paperback (May 2013)» View all books by Ryu Murakami
A side-splittingly funny coming-of-age novel set in the Japan of the sixties, Ryu Murakami's novel is an unusually funny and autobiographical book from an author known for his darkly violent and cynical side. Being young in the 1960s is the same in Japan as everywhere. This is a personal but profound insight into a much wider upheaval in society.
