Here are two novels by Japan's Nobel Prize-winning author. In Seventeen, a lost young man, raised in a country which falsifies its own history, is in the throes of becoming a right-wing activist and assassin. In J, an increasingly isolated and psychotic youth takes up chikan, a game that involves sexually assaulting women on the crowded Tokyo trains.
