Description

Content Warning
Kyoko Okazaki’s River’s Edge is a celebrated work that shows the hardships and the realities of growing up as a teenager in early 90s Tokyo. As such, it does not shy away from several triggering subjects, including physical and sexual assault, rape, anorexia and eating disorders, and murder.
This work is recommended for a mature audience. 

From renowned author, Kyoko Okazaki, the creator of Helter Skelter and Pink, comes a story of adolescence filled with friendship, drama and intertwined relationships of six high school friends.

At the edge of the city not far from the sea, a field of goldenrod sways in the breeze, its veil of amber flowers obscuring secrets underneath. Old bones and forgotten memories rest in silence, waiting for someone to dig them up. This is where the lives of six young men and women intertwine in ways both tragic and extraordinary. Decaying secrets are revealed as they forge friendships from pain, find betrayal in pleasure, and stare into the face of death itself—in a field of gold by a stagnant river, under the smoke-filled skies.
