About the Author

Yukio Mishima was born in Tokyo, Japan, in 1925. One of Japan's most acclaimed and well-known authors of the 20th century, his works include The Sailor who Fell from Grace with the Sea, The Sound of Waves, and the Sea of Fertility tetralogy (Spring Snow, Runaway Horses, The Temple of Dawn, and The Decay of the Angel). He died in 1970.

Reviews

"Beautifully translated... Mishima re-erects Kyoto, plain and mountain, monastery, temple, town, as Victor Hugo made Paris out of Notre Dame."

-- The Nation

"An amazing literary feat in its minute delineation of a neurotic personality."

-- Chicago Tribune

Translated from the Japanese by Ivan Morris
