Prefecture D, Hideo Yokoyama


A collection of four novellas: each taking place in 1998, each set in the world of Yokoyama’s previous novel SIX FOUR, and each centring around a mystery and the unfortunate officer tasked with solving it.

PREFECTURE D continues Hideo Yokoyama’s exploration of the themes of obsession, saving face, office politics and inter-departmental conflicts. Placing everyday characters between a rock and a hard place and then dialling up the pressure, he blends and balances the very Japanese with the very accessible, to spectacular effect.
