Secret Rendezvous

54,00 

At night, medics enter the apartment of the main character to take his wife to the hospital. The ambulance drives off. Everything happens so quickly that neither the woman, nor the man – a nameless employer of a company producing sports shoes – is able to ask the crucial questions: who called the medics? Which hospital? She’s perfectly healthy, isn’t she?

The next day the man sets off to find his wife and arrives at a hospital that resembles a grotesque, Kafka-style labyrinth. Disguised as a security, he explores its corridors. The “residents” are constantly being surveilled and recorded by listening devices. Everyone – with no exceptions – is full of sexual desires which is also carefully studied by the medical stuff, supervised by the Horse-man.

Sounds macabre? Mysterious? Metaphysical? You’ll find all the elements in Kōbō Abe’s writing and it depends on you – the reader – how deep you want to go into this world and what your interpretation will be.
