'Life for sale. Use me as you wish. I am a twenty-seven-year-old male. Discretion guaranteed. Will cause no bother at all.'

When Hanio Yamada realizes the future holds nothing of worth to him, he puts his life for sale in a Tokyo newspaper, thus unleashing a series of unimaginable exploits.

A world of revenge, murderous mobsters, hidden cameras, a vampire woman, poisonous carrots, espionage and code-breaking, a junkie heiress, home-made explosives and decoys reveals itself to the unwitting Hanio. Is there anything he can do to stop it?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Yields a rare glimpse of the pulp-fiction flipside that partnered the rhapsodic and mystical Mishima... grotesque, melodramatic, spectacular, utterly silly * The Times *
It's funny and horrific and curious and thoroughly entertaining and should win Mishima a new generation of fans * The Independent *
There is a place in life for the exhilarating, surreal and sometimes downright silly. This novel ticks all the boxes * Spectator *
Succeeds in capturing vividly the bathos of the self-pitying modern nihilist... the absurdity of life is conveyed through the tropes of pulp fiction and manga comics * The New Statesman *
An engaging all-action satire * The Guardian *
A writer of immense energy and ability * Time Out *
