Sinister forces collide—and unite a host of desperate characters—in this eerie collection of interwoven tales from Yoko Ogawa, the critically acclaimed author of The Housekeeper and the Professor.
An aspiring writer moves into a new apartment and discovers that her
landlady has murdered her husband. Elsewhere, an accomplished surgeon is
approached by a cabaret singer, whose beautiful appearance belies the
grotesque condition of her heart. And while the surgeon’s jealous lover
vows to kill him, a violent envy also stirs in the soul of a lonely
craftsman. Desire meets with impulse and erupts, attracting the
attention of the surgeon’s neighbor—who is drawn to a decaying residence
that is now home to instruments of human torture. Murderers and
mourners, mothers and children, lovers and innocent bystanders—their
fates converge in an ominous and darkly beautiful web.
Yoko Ogawa’s Revenge is a master class in the macabre that will haunt you to the very end. Download and start listening now!
