From Akutagawa Award-winning author Yoko Ogawa comes a haunting trio of novellas about love, motherhood, fertility, obsession, and how even the most innocent gestures contain a hairline crack of cruel intent

A lonely teenaged girl falls in love with her foster-brother as she watches him leap from a high diving board into a pool u a peculiar infatuation that sends unexpected ripples through her life.

A young woman records the daily moods of her pregnant sister in a diary, taking meticulous note of a pregnancy which may or may not be a hallucination.

Out of nostalgia, a woman visits her old college dormitory on the outskirts of Tokyo, a boarding house run by a mysterious triple amputee with one leg.

Hauntingly spare, beautiful, and twisted, The Diving Pool is a disquieting and, at times, darkly humorous collection of novellas about ordinary people who suddenly discover their own dark possibilities.
