A page-turning and yet profound novel from Japan's most decorated young writer. Winner of the Oe Prize and translated into English for the first time The Thief is a seasoned pickpocket. Anonymous in his tailored suit, he weaves in and out of Tokyo crowds, stealing wallets from strangers so smoothly sometimes he does not even remember the snatch.
Translated from the Japanese.
