Some brief overview of book

"It's not just Murakami but also the shadow of Borges that hovers over this mesmerizing book... and one may detect a slight bow to the American macabre of E. A. Poe.

Ogawa stands on the shoulders of giants, as another saying goes. But this collection may linger in your mind - it does in mine - as a delicious, perplexing, absorbing and somehow singular experience." - Alan Cheuse, NPR Sinister forces collide--and unite a host of desperate characters--in this eerie cycle 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 last page. An NPR Best Book of 2013
