Revenge by Yoko Ogawa

By February 26, 2013

Follow me on:

A farm grows mutated, hand-shaped carrots. A boy is found dead, trapped in an old refrigerator. A beautician discovers a private museum that solely displays instruments of torture. Invoking authors like Shirley Jackson and Edgar Allan Poe, Yoko Ogawa's Revenge is an exemplary reminder that traditional "fiction of the strange" is not yet a lost art.
