9780099492696: The Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea (Vintage East)

"The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea" tells of a band of savage thirteen-year-old boys who reject the adult world as illusory, hypocritical, and sentimental, and train themselves in a brutal callousness they call 'ojectivity'. When the mother of one of them begins an affair with a ship's officer, he and his friends idealize the man at first; but it is not long before they conclude that he is in fact soft and romantic. They regard their disappointment in him as an act of betrayal on his part and react violently.

Review:

"Mishima's greatest novel, and one of the greatest of the past century" ( The Times)

"Explores the viciousness that lies beneath what we imagine to be innocence" ( Independent)

"Told with Mishima's fierce attention to naturalistic detail, the grisly tale becomes painfully convincing and yields a richness of psychological and mythic truth" ( Sunday Times)

"Coolly exact with his characters and their honourable motives. His aim is to make the destruction of the sailor by his love seem as inevitable as the ocean" ( Guardian)

"Mishima's imagery is as artful as a Japanese flower arrangement" ( New York Times)

From the Publisher:

One of the nine titles in the Vintage East promotion.
