Product description

Review

A stunning addition to the oeuvre of one of postwar Japan's greatest storytellers (Wall Street Journal)

Mishima's novels exude a monstrous and compulsive weirdness, and seem to take place in a kind of purgatory for the depraved (Angela Carter)

Mishima was one of literature's great romantics, a tragedian with a heroic sensibility, an intellectual, an esthete, a man steeped in Western letters who toward the end of his life became a militant Japanese nationalist (New York Times)

Mishima is the Japanese Hemingway (Life Magazine)

A writer of immense energy and ability (Time Out)

Book Description

For the first time in English, a glittering novella about stardom and disillusionment, from 'one of the greatest avant-garde Japanese writers of the twentieth century'
