Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
From the acclaimed author of Woman in the Dunes comes Secret Rendezvous , the bizarrely erotic and comic adventures of a man searching for his missing wife in a mysteriously vast underground hospital.
From the moment that an ambulance appears in the middle of the night to take his wife, who protests that she is perfectly healthy, her bewildered husband realizes that things are not as they should be. His covert explorations reveal that the enormous hospital she was taken to is home to a network of constant surveillance, outlandish sex experiments, and an array of very odd and even violent characters. Within a few days, though no closer to finding his wife, the unnamed narrator finds himself appointed the hospital’s chief of security, reporting to a man who thinks he’s a horse. With its nightmarish vision of modern medicine and modern life, Secret Rendezvous is another masterpiece from Japan’s most gifted and original writer of serious fiction.

Review:
"A gorgeously entertaining, provocative book." -- Chicago Tribune

"A disconcertingly funny book . . . both original and edgily entertaining." — The New York Times Book Review

"Reads much as if it were the collaborative effort of Hieronymus Bosch, Franz Kafka, and Mel Brooks." -- Chicago Sun-Times
