About the book:

Suguro is an eminent Catholic novelist, about to receive a major literary award. So when a drunk woman he has never met before approaches him at the award ceremony, claiming she knows him well from his regular visits to Tokyo's red-light district, she must surely be mistaken? But with a scurrilous press campaign damaging Suguro's reputation, his sleazy doppelgänger appears more and more, as if deliberately trying to discredit him. He is sighted touring the love hotels and brothels of Shinjuku; a leering portrait of him appears in an exhibition-and Suguro is forced to undertake a journey into Tokyo's seedy heart in order to discover the dreadful truth. This provocative, impassioned meditation manages to explore not only the nature of identity, but also the regions of sin, salvation, art and religion, all with the unerring grace that defines a novelist in the fullest command of his craft.""-Publishers Weekly. ""This psychological thriller follows a novelist whe must submerge himself in Tokyo's underworld in order to discover who is trying to discredit him.""--Library Journal.
