Life and Death in Nakano-Ku

Michael Goodsell

short stories

From a librarian’s lust

for love, to the mystery of a missing sister, to the experiences of a high school girl in therapy, to a ten-year-old living through her parents’ separation, these short fictions lead us on a dark and often buoyant journey. The intimate lives of a diverse cast of characters interweave and unfold within.

Intelligent and subversive, interconnected and intriguing, Life and Death in Nakano-ku is a genre-defying collection of tales from the strange and disturbing but also playful mind of Michael Goodsell.
