Out (Vintage East)

Out - Natsuo Kirino We start this book, meeting the women as they are about to start the midnight shift at a bento* factory. Masoka, Kuniko, Yoshi & Yayoi work together on the conveyer belt preparing the separate parts of the bento boxes. We learn about the pointless day to day reality of their existence, home life's ranging from abusive partners to cold sterile relationships with family that if they've not physically left, have at least done so emotionally. These women are domestic slaves with no real presence in a society that cannot respect them, as it doesn't really see them, they are automaton, there for production - whether its bento boxes or babies.It's in this environment that Yayoi steps out of her role of perfect wife & in a fit of passion, murders her abusive philandering husband (whose blown all their money gambling & chasing a prostitute).http://parrishlantern.blogspot.com/2010/08/out.html
