A novel in three parts, linked by a single narrative of disaster, loss, and longing.
“TOKYO is rewarding and responsible in that its form is all about process and awareness—of readership, authorship and culture. If you're up for a book that upends what a story usually looks like, find Michael Mejia's TOKYO.”
“In TOKYO the boundaries between the realistic and the fantastical flex, blur, and eventually disappear altogether. Beautifully propelling us through a series of styles and voices, moving from words to photographs to paintings and back again, this is a novel that first draws us in, then reveals itself as a novel, then becomes an embodied interrogation of art and originality. A highly original and provocative work.”
“Visually arresting and gorgeously terrifying, Michael Mejia’s passionate immersion in a TOKYO of the imagination delivers an electrifying rush of sizzling sensations, a proliferation of ethical provocations, and the erotic thrill of intimate betrayal.”
