More Details

When Six Four was released in Hideo Yokoyama’s home country of Japan, it became a publishing phenomenon, selling a million copies in six days and making the author one of the country’s most famous crime writers. As much a penetrating exploration of the Japanese psyche as a “Japano-Noir” police procedural about kidnappings and cover-ups, Six Four is now, following its English translation, also making huge waves worldwide following its English translation, with The Spectator describing it as “Compelling, complex, insightful: a book to be savoured.” Yokoyama talks about his career and the success of Six Four with Yoshiko Nakano.
