The director of such feel-good films as Dead Ringers, Scanners, Videodrome, Rabid, and many similiar heartwarming tales, presents the timeless story of a husband-and-wife pair of French intellectuals, the wife found dead and partially eaten in their Paris apartment, the husband deciding that a little trip to Tokyo might be a real good idea. When a young journalist travels to Tokyo to interview the hungry little bugger, her boyfriend seduces a cancer patient and gets a sexually transmitted disease whose origin he traces to a ritzy community in Toronto. Just a light-hearted romantic romp, really -- although the dust jacket flap copy would have us believe that it's "an extraordinary, sexually charged novel of dark impusles and appetites." Black boards w/red foil spine lettering, 284 pages, dust jacket design by Chip Kidd. Dust jacket w/light edgewear, rubbing, a bit of discolouration to black panels. All in all a pretty nice copy.
