The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese
Ootomo Kyoichi is a weak-willed salaryman in a troubled marriage who is cheating on his wife. To his surprise, his wife hires a private eye to expose his affair. The one she hired for the job is Kyoichi’s underclassman from college, Imagase. Imagase offers Kyoichi to hide his infidelity in exchange for a make-out session with Kyoichi, since he is gay and always had a crush on him. Kyoichi reluctantly agrees, thinking it will save his marriage, but things with Imagase soon spiral out of control.
The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese as well as its sequel The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice will be published for the first time in North America in single volume editions. The first book will be released on 26 November 2019 for $13.99 USA / $16.99 CAN, and its sequel will be released on 11 February 2020.
