Hideo Yokoyama’S Evil Piano
2021-01-31 | by CusiGO
“A person is like a piano, the key is emotion; there may be a key that will never be touched, one of which is evil, so we can’t say we are not evil, we don’t have that key.” Hideo Yokoyama, a Japanese writer, put forward this wonderful metaphor in a virtual conversation with his colleague David peace today, which is one of the most anticipated dates at the bcnegra Film Festival, which ends on Sunday. He is a popular cult writer who has not been published in Spain so far. He has published six and four (salamanders), which is a best seller. In his country, he broke the record of Haruki Murakami, who sold one million copies in the first month. Yokoyama did the same thing in 2012… A week later. Now more than 2 million people have adapted films and translated them into 20 languages.
Yukio Yokoyama, 64, Tokyo, admitted that he learned “anyone can commit a crime” by writing 64 letters in which Commissioner mikami and his wife fled their daughter’s home without any explanation, In a horror drama about fate (or not), an old public case about a girl who disappeared 14 years ago comes to the surface again. Heping, a British writer who has lived in Japan for 25 years, for a short time, is also the author of the highly acclaimed Tokyo Trilogy (Tokyo zero, occupied city and Tokyo Redux), As a loyal fan of the Japanese writer, he added his metaphor: “we try to play a good song every day, but people are full of gray nuances, which I try to reflect in my novels.”
Peace organization described Yokoyama Yukio as a magical combination of the long tradition of Japanese mystery novels and social unrest since World War II, which is the credit of Masao Matsumoto. Yokoyama should have corrected and strengthened the second aspect, paying special attention to the conflicts between organizations and individuals. “I have always been interested in analyzing the pressure of individuals, administrative bureaucracies, institutions or companies under the hierarchy system; the Japanese attach great importance to the concept of group and hierarchy system, but we easily and fatally succumb to this group pressure.” That’s why the former event reporter’s work is not so much about detectives as about people who give him “other views”: human resources personnel, administrative office staff or journalists, which enable me to better describe the conflicts between organizations and individuals; The detective’s stereotype of classic mystery novels won’t make me think that way. ”
Before reading Yokoyama, he wrote the first two episodes of the trilogy “peace” (54 years old), but he admitted that in the last episode published in June, the writer “had a very obvious impact: the environment during the American occupation of Japan, if he had not read 6-4 episodes, he would not have paid as much attention to it as I did.”, Later, he said, he even helped him enter the Anglo Saxon world.
This may be because of the real distance (they are all in Japan, but in different cities: peace in Tokyo; Japanese in qunma prefecture), the virtual distance (they share screen games), or the weather when the host, journalist and editor Antonio Lozano asked questions Yokoyama left some well-known loopholes in Paco’s wall, and briefly introduced his formal amiable reply. Therefore, I realized that he was still working on a worn-out desktop computer, where there were the essence of “two laptops”. One was mysterious, where I developed ideas and plots, and the other was for people, where I adjusted my personal data. His way out of touch with writing is to practice gardening, which is like “writing a novel: you take the time, honey, when you come back the next day, you’ll never finish it.”
Heping also joined the hobby of “walking in the beautiful Japanese garden in the afternoon and writing in the morning”. And Yokoyama’s ultimate ambition and “eternal goal”: to write novels beyond non fiction. I mean, the piano… All the keys.
