Battle Royale (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 436

''Top of the class'' now has a whole new meaning . . .

Koushun Takami's notorious high-octane thriller is based on an irresistible premise: a class of 42 junior high school students are taken to a deserted island where, as part of a ruthless authoritarian program, they are electronically collared, provided with weapons of varying potency, and sent out onto the island.

If they are in the wrong part of the island at the wrong time, their collars will explode. If they band together to save themselves a collar will explode at random. If they try to escape from the island, they will be blown up. Their only chance for survival lies in killing their classmates.

Criticized as violent exploitation when first published in Japan - where it then proceeded to become a runaway bestseller - Battle Royale is a Lord of the Flies for the 21st century, and a potent story of politics and survival in a dog-eat-dog world.

Made into a controversial hit movie of the same name, Battle Royale is already a contemporary Japanese pulp classic, and is now available for the first time to the UK mainstream.

About the Author
Koushun Takami
was born in 1969 and is best-known as the author of the novel Battle Royale, originally published in Japanese, and later translated into English by Yuji Oniki.

After graduating from Osaka University with a degree in literature, he dropped out of Nihon University's liberal arts correspondence course program. From 1991 to 1996, he worked for the news company Shikoku Shimbun, reporting on various fields including politics, police reports and economics.

Battle Royale was completed after Takami left the news company, and was rejected in the final round of the literary competition for which it was intended, owing to its controversial content. It become a bestseller when finally released in 1999, and a year later, was made into a manga and a feature film.
