Product description

Review

"It's brave territory for Ogawa, and she manages in with sharp focus; she creates moments of breathtaking ugliness, often when least expected...but also sometimes a longing that is touching and tender" (Independent)

"Both very weird and very good... Image by perfect image, we are led down into a mysterious and gripping universe, simultaneously beautiful and terrifying... From the opening sentences of Hotel Iris you know that every word will count and that every scene will be the occasion for strong and strange feeling" (Times Literary Supplement)

"To read Ogawa is to enter a dreamlike state tinged with a nightmare... She possesses an effortless, glassy, eerie brilliance" (Guardian)

"Precisely written, this dreamlike narrative expands into an ambiguous story of sexual dependency and damage. Ogawa's exact prose glitters as menacingly as the surrounding sea" (Independent)

"Exploring dark desires is something at which Ogawa has become disconcertingly adept" (New York Times)

Book Description

A dark and beautifully written story of a young girl's tragic love triangle with an older man and his young nephew
