With a narrator suggestive of the author herself, this horror novel poses as a work of nonfiction delving into the origins of supernatural phenomena.
It begins with a letter the narrator receives near the end of 2001. The missive is from a reader named Kubo, a 30-something writer who works for an editorial company. She explains that in the apartment building where she lives on the outskirts of Tokyo, she frequently hears a sound like someone sweeping with a broom, and she gets a strong feeling that “there’s something there.” Kubo also says she saw a white strip of something rippling slowly across the tatami in the dark. The narrator is reminded of a previous letter she received and digs it out. It is from another reader who describes the same phenomena, a woman named Yashima who turns out to live in the same apartment house as Kubo: Yashima is in apartment 401, while Kubo is in apartment 204. The narrator puzzles over why the same phenomena, likely from the same cause, would be observed two floors apart. Are other apartments affected, too? She and Kubo begin investigating numerous strange phenomena that are occurring in and around the building: the sound of something crawling around beneath the floor; the sound of a baby crying; the moaning voices of several men . . . People are moving out, apparently frightened by the strange occurrences, and there are numerous suspicious deaths, including people who commit suicide after moving. After seven-odd years of investigations, the two fix on an incident that occurred in 1910: the murder-suicide of a family that operated a coalmine in northern Kyushu. Such tragic deaths create a ritual pollution, which clings to people and is transmitted like a virus; when the pollution is particularly strong, even just making a record of it or hearing about it can inflict a curse . . .
The cool, composed voice in which the narrator relates what she learns serves to heighten the horror all the more. http://www.booksfromjapan.jp
