Praise
"GROTESQUE is full of schoolgirls in long socks but blanchingly free of cuteness, a combination we might call Uh-Oh Kitty."
From the Publisher
Annotation In her second novel to be translated into English, Natsuo Kirino shows the seedy underbelly of Japan. After two Tokyo prostitutes are murdered, the older sister of one of the women describes the girls lives at a prestigious but extremely strict high school. Kirino's novel works both as a nail-biting thriller and a scathing expose of the trials and tribulations of Japanese adolescent girls.
Editors Note In the wake of the brutal murders of two Tokyo prostitutes, Yuriko and Kazue, Yuriko's older sister describes the three women's youth and education at a prestigious girls' high school, where a strict social hierarchy and rigid societal conventions determine the courses of their lives. Reprint. 30,000 first printing.
