In the Pool : Hideo Okuda :

Description A divorced man angry at his wife finds a painfully prominent outlet in a permanent erection; a model thinks every man on the street is a stalker; an overbearing magazine editor relieves his mid-life crisis by long-distance swimming.


These are some of the patients who descend to the basement consulting room of Doctor Ichiro Irabu, an obese, eccentric neurologist with an injection fetish, an Oedipus complex.

This collection of five wacky stories has been adapted for TV and the movies in Japan. Hideo Okuda won the prestigious Naoki Prize in The story offers great insight for every one of us, from Luddite to geek, regarding this pervasive contemporary phenomenon.

These are stories about characters tamping down their neuroses and getting oluda about life.

In the Pool

By these off-the-wall portrayals of ordinary people in seemingly harmless but nonetheless extraordinary predicaments, In the Pool delivers a good time indeed.
