About the Author

Yukio Mishima (1925-1970) completed his first novel the year he entered the University of Tokyo and his last novel the day of his death. He is the author of numerous novels, stories, plays, and essays. Gore Vidal once said of him: "I only regret we never met, for friends found him a good companion, a fine drinking partner, and fun to cruise with." Mishima committed suicide by ceremonial seppuku after a failed coup d'eΒ΄tat intended to restore pre-WWII power to the emperor of Japan.

Reviews

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
