Synopsis
The mysterious Kenji is a lonely, obsessive-compulsive Japanese librarian's assistant, and occasional suicide hobbyist, quietly living--and hoping to die--in Bangkok. Hiding from an unknown past, the Mishima-identified and moppishly-coiffed Kenji seems determined on a premature rendezvous with oblivion--when first we meet him, he's already swinging by the neck from a makeshift noose. Or is he? If only Nid, the beautiful Thai woman Kenji spies between the shelves one day, hadn't managed to die first. And if only Nid's acid-tongued sister, Noi--who inadvertently begins seducing the suicidal loner back into the chaos of life--weren't leaving for Osaka on the Monday morning plane.
