Synopsis

A beautiful hardback edition of the great Japanese classic.

A band of savage thirteen-year-old boys reject the adult world as illusory, hypocritical, and sentimental, and train themselves in a brutal callousness they call ‘objectivity’. When the mother of one of them begins an affair with a ship’s officer, he and his friends idealise the man at first; but it is not long before they conclude that he is in fact soft and romantic.

They regard this disillusionment as an act of betrayal on his part – and the retribution is deliberate and horrifying. A tale of youth and warped masculinity, rediscover the suspensful and deeply ominious classic with this special edition.
