Life for Sale - Yukio Mishima

Life for Sale

Yukio Mishima

Sold out

A darkly funny cult classic of a novel from one of Japan’s most revered authors Yukio Mishima. After botching a suicide attempt, salaryman Hanio Yamada decides to put his life up for sale in the classifieds section of a Tokyo newspaper. more

But what begins as mere nihilism takes a turn for the unexpected as interested parties come calling with increasingly bizarre requests. What follows is a madcap comedy of errors, involving a jealous husband, a drug-addled heiress, poisoned carrots–even a vampire. For someone who just wants to die, Hanio can’t seem to catch a break, as he finds himself caught up in a continent-wide conspiracy that puts him in the cross hairs of both his own government and a powerful organized-crime cartel. Wildly inventive, darkly comedic, and at times deeply surreal, Life For Sale is refreshingly unlike anything else in Yukio Mishima’s oeuvre, and an essential work of international literature.
