It's finally getting published in an English translated version! With the cult fame/infamy of Takashi Miike's film this would have seemed like such a no-brainer but I still had to wait about 7 years for this! Ridiculous! I can't wait! I dislike the faux-manga style cover but that's a small price to pay.

Audition

By Ryu Murakami
ISBN: 9780747589488
Format: Hardback, 208 pages, 198x129mm
Published: January 2009
Our Price: £7.50

The shocking psycho-thriller behind the cult Japanese horror film
Documentary-maker Aoyama hasnít dated anyone in the seven years since the death of his beloved wife, Ryoko. Now even his teenage son Shige has suggested he think about remarrying. So when his best friend Yoshikawa comes up with a plan to hold fake film auditions so that Aoyama can choose a new bride, he decides to go along with the idea.

Of the thousands who apply, Aoyama only has eyes for Yamasaki Asami, a young, beautiful, delicate and talented ballerina with a turbulent past. But there is more to her than Aoyama, blinded by his infatuation, can see, and by the time he discovers the terrifying truth it may be too late Ö

Ryu Murakami delivers his most subtle and disturbing novel yet, confirming him as Japanís master of the psycho-thriller.

There isn't one. You will have to import the British paperback!
