Natsuo Kirino, born in 1951, quickly established a reputation in Japan as one of a rare breed of crime writer whose work goes well beyond the conventional crime novel. This fact has been demonstrated by her winning not only Japan's top mystery award, for Out, but two of its major literary awards, the Naoki Prize and the Tanizaki Prize. Her novels available in English are Out, Grotesque, Real World and In.
