Tense, subtly disturbing literary horror from a prize-winning Japanese writer

A young girl loses her mother, and her father blindly invites his secret lover into the family home to care for her. As she obsessively tries to curate a pristine life, this new interloper remains indifferent to the girl, who seems to record her every move – and she realises only too late all that she has failed to see. With masterful narrative control, Nails and Eyes builds to a conclusion of disturbing power.

Paired with two additional stories of unsettled minds and creeping tension, it introduces a daring new voice in Japanese literature.
