Tokyo Doesn't Love Us Anymore by Ray Loriga
Rate this book

This book is a true piece of modern-day beat literature. The ubiquity of drugs in his narrative gives it a fluid impression -- the drugs make his story hard to tell, but the drugs gave him a story to tell. We are taken through a dizzying series of vi ...more
Tokyo Doesn't Love Us Anymore by Ray Loriga
"If you like cyberpunk, distopia, disordered timeline and a sense of anxiety this book is for you. Some parts need to be read carefully because the chaos in the timeline. "
Tokyo Doesn't Love Us Anymore by Ray Loriga
"such a subtly psychedelic and gorgeously blissful story. abstract and kind of dark, creepy and so so beautiful. a travelling salesman peddles a drug that erases the memory. either whole lives or single events. but then begins to sample his own war..." Read more of this review »

I read some opinions of her taking after her father, and I was wrong to assume that I'd find the resemblance in their writing style. Rather, I find hers to be "simple". Their lives couldn't be more similar though, despite the fact that they only met ...more

Charles Bukowski
“When you drank the world was still out there, but for the moment it didn't have you by the throat.”
Charles Bukowski, Factotum

James Sallis
“Change yourself, you change the world?”
James Sallis, Drive

William Golding
“I have walked by stalls in the market-place where books, dog-eared and faded from their purple, have burst with a white hosanna. I have seen people crowned with a double crown, holding in either hand the crook and flail, the power and the glory. I have understood how the scar be­comes a star, I have felt the flake of fire fall, miraculous and pentecostal. My yesterdays walk with me. They keep step, they are grey faces that peer over my shoulder.”
William Golding, Free Fall

James Sallis
“Think we choose our lives?"

"No. But I don't think they're thrust upon us, either. What it feels like to me is, they're forever seeping up under our feet.”
James Sallis, Drive

James Sallis
“This is what people are talking about when they use words like grace.

That moment, that morning, came vividly back to him whenever he thought of it. But soon suspicion set in. He understood well enough that life by very definition is upset, movement, agitation.”
