Set against the background of Japan's rise to being one of the world's most prosperous and technically advanced nations, this is the story of a Japanese business dynasty. Within their own country, the Tsutsumis are celebrated for their enormous wealth, their personalities, their private lives, and their hatred for one another. The story focuses in particular on three men: a hated father who worked his way up from nothing, his illegitimate son who inherited most of the fortune, and a spurned legitimate son who built his own business empire. The author's "On the Narrow Road to the Deep North" was shortlisted for the Thomas Cook Award in 1991.
