About the Author
Shusaku Endo (1923-1996) is widely regarded as one of the most important Japanese authors of the late twentieth century. He won many major literary awards and was nominated for the Nobel Prize several times. His novel Silence was recently made into a major film directed by Martin Scorsese.
This early novel by a writer who has since become to be viewed as a master has moments of sparkling intelligence and clarity.
