About the author

"Though little enough is translated . . . it is apparent to the Western reader that here is one of the finest of modern Japanese novelists. These new translations consolidate this already deserved reputation."

—Donald Richie, The Japan Times

"Kafu's dispassionate, vivid pictures of life in Tokyo's decaying pleasure quarters."
