In the Tokyo suburbs four women work the draining graveyard
shift at a boxed-lunch factory. Burdened with chores and heavy debts and
isolated from husbands and children, they all secretly dream of a way
out of their dead-end lives. A young mother among them finally cracks
and strangles her philandering, gambling husband then confesses her
crime to Masako, the closest of her colleagues. For reasons of her own,
Masako agrees to assist her friend and seeks the help of the other
co-workers to dismember and dispose of the body. The body parts are
discovered, the police start asking questions, but the women have far
more dangerous enemies -a yakuza connected loan shark who discovers
their secret and has a business proposition, and a ruthless nightclub
owner the police are convinced is guilty of the murder. He has lost
everything as a result of their crime and he is out for revenge. OUT is a
psychologically taut and unflinching foray into the darkest recesses of
the human soul, an unsettling reminder that the desperate desire for
freedom can make the most ordinary person do the unimaginable.
Out is a terrifying delve into the human psyche and the hidden
darkness that lies within. It takes you to the edge of the psychological
border and then grabs you and throws you over. Four women work the same
mundane graveyard shift at a boxed-lunch factory in downtown Tokyo.
Sick of heavy debts, household chores and family problems, they all
dream of a life away from it all. A young mother finally snaps and
murders her gambling husband. Mosako and her co-workers agree to
dismember and dispose of the body for her. However, they soon have more
to fear than the police asking awkward questions. A ruthless nightclub
owner has been falsely accused of the murder and he is out for revenge.
Natsuo Kirino blends a lethal cocktail of feminism, desperation and
bloody murder. She will leave you shaken to the bone and feeling like
you've just survived an earthquake. (Kirkus UK)

mystery award, for Out, but one of its major literary awards, the Naoki
Prize for Soft Cheeks. Several of her books have also been turned into

Type: Fiction. Condition : Good. Jonathan Cape, 2009, Trade Paperback, 9780224089753, 369 pp. Part noir, part psychedelic romp, all Thomas Pynchon - private eye Doc Sportello comes, occasionally, out of a haze to watch the end of an era as free love slips away and paranoia creeps in with the L.A. fog . It's been awhile since Doc Sportello has seen his ex-girlfriend. Suddenly out of nowhere she shows up with a story about a plot to kidnap a billionaire land developer whom she just happens to be in love with. Easy for her to say. It's the tail end of the psychedelic sixties in L.A., and Doc knows that 'love' is another of those words going around at the moment, like 'trip' or 'groovy', except that this one usually leads to trouble. Despite which he soon finds himself drawn into a bizarre tangle of motives and passions whose cast of characters includes surfers, hustlers, dopers and rockers, a murderous loan shark, a tenor sax player working undercover, an ex-con with a swastika tattoo and a fondness for Ethel Merman, and a mysterious entity known as the Golden Fang, which may only be a tax dodge set up by some dentists. In this lively yarn, Thomas Pynchon, working in an unaccustomed genre, provides a classic illustration of the principle that if you can remember the sixties, you weren't there...or...if you were there, then you...or, wait, is it...
