The Village of Eight Graves
The Village of Eight Graves by Seishi Yokomizo (Pushkin Press, 2021)


A Japanese classic, and one the books currently in our reading pile at home. The hamlet of Eight Graves takes its name from a centuries-old massacre that took place there, leaving in its wake a curse, new deaths and false accusations that imperil our young protagonist, Tatsuya. Brutal and savage in places, it is also beautifully and beguilingly written. (ISBN: 9781782277453, paperback.)
