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.
Meredith Weatherby was an American publisher of Japanese texts.

Reviews

"A story that is both happy and a work of art. . . . Altogether a joyous and lovely thing."
--The New York Times "Of such classic design its action might take place at any point across a thousand years."
--San Francisco Chronicle "Mishima is like Stendhal in his precise psychological analyses, like Dostoevsky in his explorations of darkly destructive personalities."
--Christian Science Monitor
