About the Author

Takeshi Kaiko (1930-1989), winner of his country's highest literary awards-both the Akutagawa and the Mainichi-was born and raised in Osaka. He is ranked by Japanese critics, with Kobo Abe, as one of Japan's two most important novelists of the generation since Mishima.

Reviews

"I thought Darkness in Summer was going to be a love story. It is rather about two people going their own separate ways even after reconnecting for a brief time. It is a story of differences, and alienation, from one another and from their own country.

All he can do is sleep: a deep, indolent, self-indulging sleep. All she can do is dwell on her hatred for Japan, for after that there is nothing else." --Dolce Bellezza
"This intensely modern novel ... provides vivid insights into the alienated condition of a certain type of Japanese whom we may so often glimpse in the streets of Rome or New York--intelligent, perceptive, and desperately lost between two worlds." --Ivan Morris, author of The Nobility of Failure
