A startling work composed of eerily vivd scenes that possess an animation-like hyper-reality, Gold Rush, a phenomenal best-seller in Japan, is a graphic, violent, controversial novel of the corruption of modern Japan and its youth.
Inspired by a 1997 real-life murder of an elementary school student by a 14 year-old boy, who displayed the murdered boy's head by the entrance of a junior high school, Gold Rush is the sotyr of a 14 year-old boy raised by his detached, repulsive father in the poor, crime-ridden Japanese port city of Yokohama.
