Pain is collaborative It has to be both inflicted and acknowledged or it doesn t count Ryu Murakami the aging enfant terrible of Japan is interested in both His work is marked by graphic sex and shocking violence For some reason I saw the movie adaptation of his Audition and I m all set with piano wire now Piano wire it s not just for whatever it s supposed to be forThe thing with relationships is that they constitute an agreement to inflict your damage on each other right I am fucked up and you re going to catch it and you are fucked up and I m going to catch it And with any luck you find someone who wants that kind of damage Some people want to be controlled some people want to control Some people want to have big screaming fights some people want passive aggression in their lives Romance is just matching damage That s all we re talking about here in Piercing I mean my personal damage is like I make too many lists And these people are both dangerously insane so the scale is different But still basically same thing I have this pain to give I d like it accepted Acknowledged This is an icky thing to say It s a pitch dark view of relationships But there is a little bit of truth to it isn t there I thought about my marriage It s perfect and my wife is my best friend and I love her all the way But there sthere s not none of this friend There s a little damage Ryu Murakami looking enfant terrible yOne of the things you can do with fiction is take a human truth and blow it up to super dramatic size It s what Bret Easton Ellis was up to in American Psycho and it s what Ryu Murakami is up to here just as effectively When writers go all the way into the dark like Murakami does they can force you to confront aspects of your own humanity that you d maybe not always prefer to acknowledge I think there s value in thatAnyway the very first image in Piercing is of a peacefully sleeping child with his father standing over her crib in the night holding an ice pick up to her cheek He s wondering what he can do to keep himself from stabbing her He decides to murder a hooker instead as one does The hooker and he form a certain sort of relationship Damage ensues I accept it

Style explores themes of child abuse and what happens to the voiceless among us weaving a disturbing spare tale of two people who find each other and then are forced into hurting each other deeply because of the haunting specter of their own abuse as children. Although this was the first Murakami I ve read I saw the film adaptation of his Audition and my reading this was impelled by watching the trailer for the upcoming Anglicized movie version As expected it s a nasty little piece of work just the perfect antidote needed during the jollity of the holiday season It reads uickly and although the psychological explanations for the psychoses of the two leads gets a bit heavy handed at times it comes to a nicely piercing conclusion

I could never be a nurse or a doctor or a paramedic Thank GOD for those people because they were born with a strength that I lack The sight of blood gore bone vomit and any number of other bodily excretions well they make me lightheaded wobbly kneed Don t get me started on the thought of parasites Worms they will be the death of me Same with black flies grown up maggots In short I m a wimpI m not wimpish when it comes to my literature though I love ruthless books books that go places sometimes deep and dark sometimes extreme They aren t frigid these books They don t employ restraint or propriety They often disturb chill shock They make my heart seize up a little and I breathe YES on the shaky exhaleBut this bookIt made me feel physically ill It reminded me of the wimp I am when I m in a hospital Of how when I see blood the edges become black as my consciousness threatens to slip away The violence in this book forced me regularly to turn from the pages for a reprieve But then I returnedI have to laugh at myself What did I expect anyway The book s back cover explains that the main character has a visceral desire to stab his sleeping infant with an ice pick Thankfully he doesn t do it but his way of avoiding it puts him in a completely different situation A situation with an SM prostitute who is every bit as psychologically scarred as he is and who desires to receive and inflict pain as much as he does It is terrifying to see the extreme effects of their childhood trauma It scared the shit out of meTheirs is a psychotic understanding hopefully far too extreme for most readers to easily comprehend but it does show how our damage can t help but leak out in harmful ways Perhaps our ways don t result in a trip to the ER but they can wreak havoc all the same Achilles tendons A Swiss Army knife A can opener An ice pick An eye in its crimson worldGod we re a fucked up people
