Most Helpful Customer Reviews

This books contains two novellas by Junichiro Tanizaki and tranlated by Anthony Chambers. Tanizaki wrote these in 1930 and they are suppose to be his favorite.

The Secret History of the Lord of Musashi is filled with scandel. The subject is of a great lord whose sexual fixations includes a sick obsession in severed heads, espcially those without noses. This is more of a horror story of old.

Arrowroot is meditative, poetic, it describes the journey of two friends traveling together. One is looking for information about a lost imperial court from the 15th centuary, the other is trying to understand his dead mother.
