A dark look Japan in the 1970s through a series of short stories. I highly recommend it as it is unlike anything I have ever come across.

Dark in the way Japanese authors can be; as in a brutally honest look at our less noble urges.

Abandon the Old in Tokyo continues to delve into the urban underbelly of 1960s Tokyo, exposing not only the seedy dealings of the Japanese everyman but Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s maturation as a storywriter. Many of the stories deal with the economic hardships of the time and the strained relationships between men and women, but do so by means of dark allegorical twists and turns.
