Coin Locker Babies is Ryu Murakami’s cult cyperpunk novel.
Two babies are left in a Tokyo station coin locker and survive against the odds, but their lives are forever tainted by this inauspicious start.
As they grow up, they join the ranks of Toxitown: a district of addicts, freaks and prostitutes. One becomes a bisexual rock star and looks for his mother, while the other one, an athlete, seeks revenge. This savage and stunning story unfolds in a surrealistic whirl of violence.
Coin Locker Babies is translated from the Japanese by Stephen Snyder and published by Pushkin Press.
