Out Description

Natsuo Kirino s novel tells a story of random violence in the staid Tokyo suburbs, as a young mother who works a night shift making boxed lunches brutally strangles her deadbeat husband and then seeks the help of her co workers to dispose of the body and cover up her crime.The ringleader of this cover up, Masako Katori, emerges as the emotional heart of Out and as one of the shrewdest, most clear eyed creations in recent fiction Masako s own search for a way out of the straitjacket of a dead end life leads her, too, to take drastic action.The complex yet riveting narrative seamlessly combines a convincing glimpse into the grimy world of Japan s yakuza with a brilliant portrayal of the psychology of a violent crime and the ensuing game of cat and mouse between seasoned detectives and a group of determined but inexperienced criminals Kirino has mastered a Thelma and Louise kind of graveyard humor than illuminators her stunning evocation of the pressures and prejudices that drive women to extreme deeds and the friendship that bolsters them in the aftermath..
