Spanish (1)  English (1)  All languages (2)
An unnamed man travels the globe selling a mind-wiping drug to people who need to forget unpleasant experiences. Cult Spanish author Loriga takes us on a journey filled with sex, drugs and rambling nihilism. Reads like Houellebecq, but without the sense of humour. ( )
  cliffagogo | Mar 17, 2007 |
Loriga deals in the classic Burroughs-ian tropes of the Company and the Agent, who is dangerously addicted to the substance he is selling, apparently to suppress the details of a long-lost love affair.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802141471, Paperback)

A cult figure in Europe and Spain's hottest talent, Ray Loriga, impresses the literary world with each new work of his innovative fiction. With his intense new novel Tokyo Doesn't Love Us Anymore, Loriga lays bare the world we live in, the drug culture that surrounds us, the nature of forgetfulness, and the implacable tyranny of emotions. Set in the very near future, it is the story of a traveling salesman floating from arid Arizona parking lots to steamy Bangkok bars to peddle the hottest new commodity for a group known only as The Company. What he has is a drug that erases memory. You can choose your oblivion, be it one mistake or a lifetime of pain, but things become hazy when our hero begins sampling the goods and reaches the point where he can't even remember what it is he cannot remember. A pitch-perfect mood piece for our times, quickened with his graceful and hypnotic prose, Loriga is tackling nothing less than the question of what it means to be human when everything, including human identity, can be bought. This is a novel as compelling as they come from a writer who is not to be forgotten.
