My Annihilation: Fuminori Nakamura
Originally aired on June 05
Re-release June 06
What motivates a killer? Is everyone capable of a crime as heinous as murder? Award-winning Japanese author Fuminori Nakamura’s latest book, My Annihilation (translated by Sam Bett), gets to the crux of these queries in a deeply revealing and disturbingly honest examination of the psychological motives of a killer. Nakamura’s creative, puzzling narrative style makes it nearly impossible to discern what is truth and what is fabrication, until the very end. Trust no one when reading – not even yourself. Join a master of literary noir in this fascinating look into the darkest corners of human consciousness. This virtual event will be presented in Japanese with English captions.
