A salesman for The Company searches hazily for his wife, grasping at memories just out of reach. When they ask after her he tells them she's dead. They say she may be in Tokyo.
Set in the very near future, Tokyo Doesn't Love Us Anymore presents a dystopian vision akin to Orwell's 1984 - while evoking the bewildering visual universe of Blade Runner.
One of Spain's most successful authors has produced a dizzying picaresque novel of drug-fuelled nights and wild sexual encounters: dealing with issues as diverse as loss, chemical dependency and the power of the multi-national conglomerates.

"A fascinating cross between Marguerite Duras and Jim Thompson." (Pedro Almodovar)
"Loriga is set to join that select band of writers - like Michael Houellebecq and Hruki Murakami - who are busy retooling fiction for the 21st century" Big Issue
