A novel by Rika Yokomori
Saya's mother always told her, 'Whatever you do, don't go with a gambler', then, just out of school, she meets Bogey, a sweet-talking, forty-something hustler. 'Somehow me and Bogey hit it off right from the word go; or as he put it, in his weird Japanese English, we were a "just-meet feeling couple.'" Yokomori's Tokyo is a city riding on the wave of excess that a flood of money can bring, while an undercurrent of soft corruption is surfacing in the society that's slipping away from its roots and losing its centre. "Tokyo Tango" is a modern romance that tells an age-old story of forbidden love, brought to life under the bright lights of a city in the grip of change.
