Matthieu Reviews: Devils in Daylight

Out April 25th, Devils in Daylight is one of two newly translated novels by Japanese Author Junichiro Tanizaki. It opens on writer Takahashi taking a call from his admittedly eccentric friend Sonomura regarding a murder set to take place in the early hours of the morning. After much convincing and prodding, Takahashi takes Sonomura up on his offer to observe the murder first hand. Devils in Daylight  has all the characteristics of a Tanizaki story: Psychological acuity, salacious characters, and a penchant for the dark recesses of human consciousness.
