Synopsis

Synopsis

As indicated by the title, Bødy is a collection of horror stories, all thematically linked to people's perception of their bodies, and the consequences of vanity and low self-esteem. In the vein of the psychological suspense of the Twilight Zone, each story ends with a shock, leaving the reader unsettled with the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for," echoing in their bones.

Appropriately, each of the five stories in Bødy gets its title from the body parts featured, buttocks, blood, face, hair and chin.

Praise for Asa Nonami

“This pulpy family psychodrama is hugely entertaining—like watching some filmed version of The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test from an adapted screenplay by Mario Puzo and directed by Yasujiro Ozu.” —TIME Asia on Now You're One of Us

“Asa Nonami has crafted a fascinating horror story that lingers in the imagination long after the final page has been turned.” —HorrorReader.com on Now You're One of Us
