Product description


Genius...Yukio Mishima is one of the great writers of the 20th-century. An extraordinary mind.

When I read a writer such as Mishima I'm not only experiencing a narrative but also dueling with another darkness behind the words. A seemingly empty house haunted with invisible presences obtusely felt, and the tingle of awareness that someone else is in it, watching.--Benjamin Hale

In Death in Midsummer Yukio Mishima unfolds to English-language readers a range of his talents as he explores a variety of pathways into the complex Japanese personality. He can be funny, even hilarious, but he is also capable of plunging into the dark psychic depths achieved by Hitchcock.--Robert Trumbull

From the Back Cover

Recognized throughout the world for his brilliance as a novelist and playwright, Yokio Mishima is also noted as a master of the short story in his native Japan, where the form is practiced as a major art.
