“In his most irreverent novel yet, Ryu Murakami creates a rivalry of epic proportions between six aimless youths and six tough-as-nails women who battle for control of a Tokyo neighborhood. At the outset, the young men seem louche but harmless, their activities limited to drinking, snacking, peering at a naked neighbor through a window, and performing karaoke. The six ‘aunties’ are fiercely independent career women. When one of the boys executes a lethal ambush of one of the women, chaos ensues. “ #66938
