This has all the space pirates and all-powerful tyrannical empires you could want, with added nuance and social commentary. This book shifts from corporate thriller to space opera with exceptional grace, and gives us the brilliant, analytical, difficult to impress Vivian Liao as our guide. Plus, it's just a ton of fun.

A slim, surprising story, Kawakami weaves folklore with a classic school story, bringing back the unsettling feeling of pre-pubescent reality, in which the surreal mix of the imaginary and the tortures of other children are normal. Spooky and strange, this book will leave you wanting more.
