    Seriously perturbed about a rash of late night impulses to murder his newborn child with an ice pick, Tokyo businessman Kawashima Masayuki decides that the only sensible thing to do is to murder a random prostitute instead But even with all his careful preparations, which Kawashima painstakingly scribbles into a notebook, the last thing that our everyman hero expects is that his intended victim is just as deranged and volatile a freak as himself.Sanada Chiaki is a SM call girl in her early twenties who has been suffering a sexual dry spell after a strand of unsatisfying boyfriends When not lobotomizing herself on pharmaceuticals, Chiaki passes the time transferring the all consuming inner turmoil of her deeply troubled past into acts of self mutilation and occasional bodily harm to others Piercing is a pithy and nasty novel with the structure and pacing of a shock thriller until the narrative derails completely into a twisted romance of sorts between two psychotic, toxic personalities After a deceivingly cursory set up, the book shifts gears and the last hundred pages, which in a single chapter relates Kawashima and Chiaki s eventful night together, moves at some serious fucked up velocity And while bleak and certainly not for the weak of stomach, there is a mean spirited streak of subtle gallows humor that penetrates the often erroneous interior dialogues of the novel s two leads, giving the novel dramatic heft as a disturbing satirical peep show into the psychogeography of the give and take and take and take that we call relationships.

    Ryu Murakami is an expert on the high art of Japanese pulp what s not to love In this twisted thriller, two psychologically damaged characters are caught in a double standoff They are fighting each other, and they are fighting the urge to self destruct And you could even make the case that the young father and the S M sex worker aren t the only ones in the room, as they both suffer from out of body experiences caused by trauma and are haunted by their former tormentors this novel has multiple layers, one creepier than the other Short intro to the story Kawashima Masayuki is afraid he might hurt his own baby Still terrorized by the abuse he endured from his mentally ill mother, he fights the impulse to stab his Infant with an ice pick and he decides that in order to prevent this, he should stab a sex worker instead But he didn t anticipate what this particular sex worker has in store for himThis book is wild, scary, and thrilling a typical Ryu Murakami and while I also love Haruki, I bet an unassuming reader who picks up this novel because he happened to confuse the two will be scarred for life I m on my way to become a Ryu completist, and I already have two of his books on my bedside table From the Fatherland, with Love and Popular Hits of the Showa Era.

    Pain is collaborative It has to be both inflicted and acknowledged, or it doesn t count Ryu Murakami, the aging enfant terrible of Japan, is interested in both His work is marked by graphic sex and shocking violence For some reason I saw the movie adaptation of his Audition and I m all set with piano wire now Piano wire it s not just for whatever it s supposed to be for The thing with relationships is that they constitute an agreement to inflict your damage on each other, right I am fucked up and you re going to catch it, and you are fucked up and I m going to catch it And with any luck, you find someone who wants that kind of damage Some people want to be controlled, some people want to control Some people want to have big screaming fights, some people want passive aggression in their lives Romance is just matching damage That s all we re talking about here in Piercing. I mean, my personal damage is, like, I make too many lists And these people are both dangerously insane, so the scale is different But still, basically same thing I have this pain to give I d like it accepted Acknowledged This is an icky thing to say It s a pitch dark view of relationships But there is a little bit of truth to it, isn t there I thought about my marriage It s perfect and my wife is my best friend and I love her all the way But there s.there s not none of this, friend There s a little damage Ryu Murakami looking enfant terrible yOne of the things you can do with fiction is take a human truth and blow it up to super dramatic size It s what Bret Easton Ellis was up to in American Psycho and it s what Ryu Murakami is up to here, just as effectively When writers go all the way into the dark, like Murakami does, they can force you to confront aspects of your own humanity that you d maybe not always prefer to acknowledge I think there s value in that.Anyway, the very first image in Piercing is of a peacefully sleeping child, with his father standing over her crib in the night holding an ice pick up to her cheek He s wondering what he can do to keep himself from stabbing her He decides to murder a hooker instead, as one does The hooker and he form a certain sort of relationship Damage ensues I accept it.

    This review and stranger things on Blood Red Velvet.Some books are unrelenting rays of sunshine, filling you with joy, optimism and hope for the future. and then there is Piercing, a two hundred page miasma of darkness and human misery.It s not so much a horror story per se, with most of the true horror being in Kawashima and Chiaki s mistreatment as children, and how it continues to warp and destroy their lives as adults Kawashima s homicidal fantasies and Chiaki s self destructiveness collide into a corrosive mess after they meet by chance There are a lot of parallels to his earlier book, Coin Locker Babies in that the characters have a lot of pent up rage and agony from childhood that never could be vented or gotten justice for.Ryu not Haruki, do not confuse them Murakami s artistic writing style, with its fractured pacing, is like a bandage being torn off slowly and with a great deal of tension, as if you re not sure whether it will reveal a gaping wound or a small cut Ultimately, it is both Piercing paints a portrait of a wound which seems small on the surface, but runs bone deep Contains some content that could be disturbing or triggering, namely depictions of abuse and self harm.

    so this book made me feel physically unwell I think it was an excellent, well written book, masterfully translated, but it was extremely painful and unpleasant to read the two main characters have a lot of residual damage from childhood traumas that they never dealt with it s a very visceral, intense and dark story murakami s descriptions of violence and abuse are graphic and minutely detailed, but not without compassion the characters are fully realized, and I think the characters relentless battering of themselves and each other was so overwhelming that their disturbed thoughts became compelling and, in a way, understandable compulsive self mutilation, for example, or how masayuki learned to isolate himself from pain and fear kindness there were also some important points about how precarious your life is when you re part of a marginalized group, like immigrants or sex workers seriously doubt I would ever even entertain the idea of reading this again, and I don t know if I ll ever read anything else by ryu the other murakami but I think it s very powerful and worth reading, if you can stomach it.

    Memories aren t like words they re soft and gooey Covered with a sticky slime, like a penis after sex, or a vagina when you menstruate, and shaped like tadpoles or tiny watersnakes When these sleeping memories are awakened, they begin to squirm and then swim, slowly at first but gradually faster, up to the surface And once they get there, your senses shut down.
