Summary Three Tokyo-set stories: A young woman finds her life useless and goes on to experience a metamorphosis. A disheveled Caucasian who calls himself "Merde" emerges from a manhole to face arrest, trial, and execution; he speaks a language only his look-alike attorney understands. A recluse experiences human contact when a pizza-delivery girl faints at his door during an earthquake.
