Tokyo nights: a novel
Fiction. This book is a fast and enjoyable read. Take three men and three women. Mix them well in the summer heat and cool autumn of Ginza. This book was first published in London in 1988, revised edition published in 1994. This second revised edition contains a new introduction by David Cozy. "A Bizarre manga, a post-modern comedy of manners full of withering insights into contemporary Japan"--The Japan Times. "It is Richie's unswerving commitment to make it only too plain what these sorts of people do say (and don't say) to each other that makes the novel so suffocatingly authentic"--Intersect.
