Product Details


“If you like stories that explore our often strange and beautiful relationship to the natural world, or stories about dedicated scientists, or even mysteries and detective novels, you’ll thoroughly enjoy BIOGENESIS.” — SF Signal

“A metaphor of perdition, on the level of all of humanity, is concretized as a small, imaginary animal via the mediating factor of incurable diseases that bring death to two doctors of medicine. In our nation, such excellent conceptions used to belong to Kobo Abe.” –Kenzaburo Oe, Nobel Laureate in Literature

“The work’s novel form and style will be remembered as a turning point in Japanese literature. Moreover, the exploration of the enigma of ‘the winged mouse’s extinction’ can also easily be enjoyed as the finest of mysteries.” –Koji Suzuki, author of Ring and Dark Water

“Why does such dry writing in the format of a report touch me so? Why is it so beautiful? No matter how many times I read it, the tears keep flowing. This is no ‘fusion of science and literature.’ It is the overwhelming reality of animate ‘life’ itself.” –Hideaki Sena, author of Parasite Eve
