A young writer arrives at a prison to interview a convict. The writer has been commissioned to write a full account of the case, from the bizarre and grisly details of the crime to the nature of the man behind it. The suspect, a world-renowned photographer named Kiharazaka, has a deeply unsettling portfoliolurking beneath the surface of each photograph is an acutely obsessive fascination with his subject.He stands accused of murdering two womenboth burned aliveand will likely face the death penalty. But something isnt quite right. As the young writer probes further, his doubts about this man as a killer intensify, and he struggles to maintain his sense of reason and justice. Is Kiharazaka truly guilty, or will he die to protect someone else?Evoking Truman Capotes In Cold Blood and Ry?nosuke Akutagawas Hell Screen, Last Winter, We Parted is a twisted tale that asks a deceptively sinister question: Is it possible to truly capture the essence of another human being?From the Hardcover edition.
