Om forfatteren

Yukio Mishima was born in 1925 in Tokyo, and is considered one of the Japan's most important writers. His books broke social boundaries and taboos at a time when Japan found itself in a state of rapid social change. His interests, besides writing, included body-building, acting and practising as a Samurai. In 1970 he attempted to start a military coup, which failed. Upon realizing this, Mishima performed seppuku, a ritual suicide, upon himself. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature three times.

Anmeldelser

«Mishima is the Japanese Hemingway»

Life Magazine

«A writer of immense energy and ability»

Time Out

«

A sexually and psychologically complex novel... in a honed translation by Andrew Clare

»

Damian Flanagan, TLS

«This morose little gem boasts its share of sensuous depravity»

Wall Street Journal

«Mishima was one of literature's great romantics, a tragedian with a heroic sensibility, an intellectual, an esthete, a man steeped in Western letters who toward the end of his life became a militant Japanese nationalist»

New York Times
