Review:

"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 "From the Trade Paperback edition."
