Book Review: Natsuo Kirino, Out (1997)

Take your favorite vintage noir PBO, transfer its setting to present-day Tokyo, turn your loner anti-hero into a quartet of anti-heroines, and the result is Out. This brilliant combination of Everyman noir and psycho noir is by far the best Japanese neo-noir that I have read. Highly, highly recommended. Grade: A
