One of Tsutsui’s best-known and most popular works in his native Japan, The Girl Who Leapt through Time
is the story of fifteen-year-old schoolgirl Kazuko, who accidentally discovers that she can leap back and forth in time. In her quest to uncover the identity of the mysterious figure that she believes to be responsible for her paranormal abilities, she’ll constantly have to push the boundaries of space and time, and challenge the notions of dream and reality.
After the success of Paprika, Hell, The Maid
and Salmonella Men on Planet Porno
, this is the fifth work by one of the greatest and most acclaimed living Japanese writers to be translated in English, displaying all the author’s dry humour and relish for the absurd.
'The nice thing about Tsutsui is that
history and modernity combine
effortlessly, as do drab reality and
fantasy.' Philip Hensher,
