Explore contemporary Japan in all its thrilling complexity with two dynamic novelists, Hideo Furukawa and Tomoyuki Hoshino. Furukawa pays homage to Haruki Murakami in his book Slow Boat, a circular, mesmeric narrative of a young man attempting to escape Tokyo and the lovers who pursue him. Tomoyuki Hoshino is a novelist who goes where others fear to tread, exploring sexual identity, neoliberalism and power structures in Japanese society in earlier books including We The Children Of Cats and his latest work – ME: A Novel. The authors will read and discuss their work and sign books after the event.
