Reviews

  • 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
