I loved "Out," and really wanted to love "Grotesque." It was a long, drawn out, big whine from a self-absorbed young woman in modern Japan. Very depressing. Bleck!

Be prepared to be depressed and to feel old after reading this book (if you are over 30), but it's an excellent glimpse into another culture and their value of women.

Lots of narrative to wade through, but overall it really makes you think.
