Snakes and Earrings

Snakes and Earrings - Hitomi Kanehara, David James Karashima pretty bad and transparent attempt to create "succes d'scandal;" Kanehara is probably supported by the Japanese literary establishment because she is coming from the normally unproductive and unliterary subculture of teenybopper body-modifiers-- in this case, extreme tongue modification-- ; this very short, probably hurridly written novel explores the feelings of a sort of trashy underclass girl and though it uses a obvious plot point to create "scandal," of course American Psycho is a far superior work.
