9780099526643: Parade

In a crowded two-bedroom apartment in Tokyo, four Japanese twenty-somethings are waiting for their lives to begin. They have come from all over Japan, bringing with them dreams of success and romance, but life isn’t exactly going as planned. Kotomi waits by the phone for a boyfriend who never calls, Ryosuke is sleeping with his best friend’s girlfriend, and Mirai’s drinking has become a serious problem. Only Naoki, an aspiring filmmaker and the glue that keeps them all together, seems to be on the right track. Meanwhile, their next door neighbors are up to something suspicious, and a mysterious attacker is terrorizing the neighborhood.

When a homeless teenager suddenly appears, his arrival sets off a chain of events that will bring to light dark secrets the tenants of Apt. 401 have kept from one another—and from themselves. Parade—from Shuichi Yoshida (“Japan’s Stieg Larsson” — The Wall Street Journal), the wildly popular author of Villain—is a shocking story of life in the big city.

Product Description:

Four twenty-somethings share an apartment in Tokyo. In Parade each tells their story: their lives, their hopes and fears, their loves, their secrets.

Kotomi waits by the phone for a boyfriend who never calls. Ryosuke wants someone that he can’t have. Mirai spends her days drawing and her nights hanging out in gay bars. Naoki works for a film company, and everyone treats him like an elder brother. Then Satoru turns up. He’s eighteen, homeless, and does night work of a very particular type.

In the next-door apartment something disturbing is going on. And outside, in the streets around their apartment block, there is violence in the air. From the writer of the cult classic Villain, Parade is a tense, disturbing, thrilling tale of life in the city.

Review:

"A sharply observed slice of urban alienation" (Laura Wilson Guardian)

"Imagine if Friends had ended with the revelation that Chandler was a psychopath – and that Joey, Monica, Ross, Phoebe and Rachel weren't bothered by it. Yoshida locates horror less in violence than in the kind of atomisation that would permit it" (Yo Zushi New Statesman)

"Unsettling, prosaic, effortlessly profound… Yoshida creates a Tokyo both mundane and chilling, a metropolis not of neon and punk but of small rooms in which people who live with each other may as well just be passengers on a subway train, marking time until a stop that never comes" (Stephen Joyce Nudge)

"Startling... It is a fascinating story of how five people can co-exist, written in each character's own words... The unexpected, if almost inevitable conclusion brings things to a brilliant end" ( UK Press Syndication)

"A brilliant book" ( UK Press Syndication)
