In the national museum in Tokyo, there is a rather singular old roller. The artist represented in an expressionist way, phases of a corpse decomposition. This illustrates the very particular relation of Japanese with the body.
" The tortured young girl on the rack." What a title!
A 16 year old young girl died. Her corpse continues to think. The Medical college buy her corpse for its laboratory of anatomy.
While she is progressively dissected, the young girl delivers by impressionist touches, keys

La première nouvelle prête son titre au recueil. Ce récit fantastique est tout simplement sublime, la narratrice nous entraîne dans l'antichambre de sa mort. C'est froid, c'est évanescent, c'est extraordinaire.

Weird. But in a good way. First story is kinda creepy, but manages to stay away from being disgusting. The other one is more gripping, and the ending is very very good.
Tellement Heavy. Tellement bien écrit. Assister pas tellement à sa propre mort qu'à ce qui arrive de son propre corps.
