*One of Literary Hub 's "Ten Works of Literary Horror You Should Read (Even if You Don't Think You Like Horror)"*

A pulsating psycho-thriller from Ryu Murakami, author of In the Miso Soup

A renaissance man for the postmodern age, Ryu Murakami--a musician, filmmaker ( Tokyo Decadence ), TV personality, and award-winning author--has gained a cult following in the West. His first novel, Almost Transparent Blue , won Japan's most coveted literary prize and sold over a million copies, and his most recent psychosexual thriller, In the Miso Soup , gave readers a further taste of his incredibly agile imagination. In Piercing , Murakami, in his own unique style, explores themes of child abuse and what happens to the voiceless among us, weaving a disturbing, spare tale of two people who find each other and then are forced into hurting each other deeply because of the haunting specter of their own abuse as children.
