Product Details

Praise

“Emotionally complex and thoroughly heart-rending, this book is recommended for anyone searching for a more thorough and personal understanding of Japanese society.” —Publishers Weekly



“The first female ever to break the code of silence and speak about life for women in the underworld…her best-selling memoir shocked [Japan]… with its graphic accounts of her addictions to sex, drugs and violent lovers.” —Marie Claire^



“[Tendo’s] story…shines a light into a dark and little understood corner of modern Japan.” —The Guardian



“The book offers a rare woman’s view of Japan’s criminal underbelly.” —The Independent



“Much has been written about Japan’s gangsters—their full-body tattoos, boozing, womanizing, strict honor codes and occasional explosions of violence. Very little has been heard from their lovers, daughters or wives. Tendo has been all three.” —Bloomberg



“A chilling and tawdry tale about family life and romance among the yakuza.” —The Wall Street Journal



“A raw, heartbreaking account of damaged youth.” —Bust^



“A thrilling memoir…an exclusive glimpse into a life rarely experienced firsthand.” —Time Out Chicago^
