I LOVE LORD BUDDHA: Manga Style Fiction - by Hillary Raphael
I LOVE LORD BUDDHA: Manga Fiction
Manga Style Novel by Hillary Raphael
This, her first novel, is being called by some the future of literature - and by others a post-erotic revolution.
Set in late-90's Tokyo it tells the history of the Neo-Geisha Organization - a sex & death cult with an anti-consumerist, pro-hedonist, sub-Buddhist ideology - The cult is led by Hiyoko, a leggy westerner with a taste for Eastern philosophy and drug-fueled sex binges - her followers are curious young women with perfect bodies that have traveled thousands of miles to work in Tokyo's neon-lit network of underground hostess bars.
The novel is inspired by early Japanese literature, the AUM Subway-Gas Cult and the esoteric texts of Buddhism - reads like fetishistic techno cyber-manga.
