Product Description


"Inside My Glass Doors" offers the collected observations and ruminations of a great author at the height of his powers. Written a year before the author's death, the stories are filled with flashbacks to Soseki's youth - his classmates, his family and his old neighbourhood - as well as episodes from the more recent past. Readers are ushered into the book-lined study of his residence in Kikui-cho, as he muses on his present situation and reflects on the past. From the quiet spaces inside the glass doors of his study, he calmly observes the clamorous state of the world outside.
