Three ferocious teenaged gangs are fighting for control over the ruins of Tokyo, decimated one year earlier by a tsunami. The forces driving the lawless megalopolis are now those of carnage, sex and destruction. The gangs confront one another in a series of murderous encounters, until the nature of power itself has been stripped to the bone. Tokyo forms an arena in which the human body must transform itself in order to survive. In this unprecedented novel - a virulent amalgam of J.G. Ballard and Takashi Miike - Stephen Barber continues his reinvention of extreme sex-writing, meshing it with bike-gang violence and the growing contemporary obsession with the out-of-control, proliferating techno-cities of East Asia. This is a novel that will satiate all readers engaged with exploring the outer reaches of nihilistic violence, sexual addiction and urban exhilaration. TOKYO SLAUGHTERHOUSE offers an extravagant onslaught for the reader's senses.
