Reviews

"Emotionally complex and thoroughly heart-rending, this book is recommended for anyone searching for a more thorough and personal understanding of Japanese society." --Publishers Weekly


"The first female ever to break the code of silence and speak about life for women in the underworld...her best-selling memoir shocked [Japan]... with its graphic accounts of her addictions to sex, drugs and violent lovers." --Marie Claire^
"[Tendo's] story...shines a light into a dark and little understood corner of modern Japan." --The Guardian
"The book offers a rare woman's view of Japan's criminal underbelly." --The Independent
"Much has been written about Japan's gangsters--their full-body tattoos, boozing, womanizing, strict honor codes and occasional explosions of violence. Very little has been heard from their lovers, daughters or wives. Tendo has been all three." --Bloomberg
"A chilling and tawdry tale about family life and romance among the yakuza." --The Wall Street Journal
"A raw, heartbreaking account of damaged youth." --Bust^
"A thrilling memoir...an exclusive glimpse into a life rarely experienced firsthand." --Time Out Chicago^
