Lonely Hearts Killer


Manufacturer: PM Press

Product Information

 What happens when a popular and young emperor suddenly dies and the only person available to succeed him is his sister?  How can people in an island country survive as climate change and martial law are eroding more and more opportunities for local sustainability and mutual aid?  Where can people turn when the wildly distorted stories told on the nightly news are about them?  And what can be done to challenge the rise of a new authoritarian political leadership at a time when the general public is obsessed with fears related to personal and national “security”? 

These and other provocative questions provide the backdrop for this powerhouse novel about young adults embroiled in what appear to be more private matters – friendships, sex, a love suicide, and struggles to cope with grief and work.  Lonely Hearts Killer compels readers to examine the relationship between state violence and interpersonal brutality while pointing toward ways out of the escalating terror.  First English translation of a full-length novel by the award-winning Japanese author Tomoyuki Hoshino.

Published by PM Press, 2010.
