A love story that explores the mechanics of the heart and humankind's inevitable evolution. One Love Chigusa by Soji Shimada, one of Japan's most famous authors, is a tale of obsessive love in a world where technology has crept into the very heart of humanity.

The year is 2091 AD. A horrendous motorcycle accident leaves Xie Hoyu coming to terms with his new cybernetic body. Reconstructed from the latest biomechanical prosthetics, he is discharged from hospital and tries to return to his life as an illustrator after many weeks in recovery. While surgery saves his life, existence for Xie has lost all meaning. His saviour comes in the form of a girl with whom Xie falls hopelessly in love. But not all is as it seems.

Translated by Sir David Warren, a retired diplomat and former British ambassador to Japan, One Love Chigusa offers a glimpse into a possible future and questions the purpose of humanity in a manner that only Japan's master of the postmodern whodunnit can do.
