Coin Locker Babies

  “Coin Locker Babies” contains some of the strongest visual evocations I came to read in a novel. Probably because I’m from that generation who experience a morbid fascination for urban ruins and waste lands. Is it the Island where Kiku and Hashi are raised, its abandoned mine and deserted town ? Is it this flat in Tokyo where a crocodile is locked in ? Or probably this solid and wildly dyed vision of Toxitown ?

Wikipedia mentions some interesting side facts :
“Coin Locker Babies” was the original name of this grand group “The Pillows”.
The authors of “Silent Hill 4” might have found they inspiration is the novel.

God Bless Wikipedia (that was the lamest though of the week).
