Product description

From the Inside Flap

On November 25, 1970, Japan's most renowned postwar novelist, Yukio Mishima, stunned the world by committing ritual suicide. Here, Marguerite Yourcenar, a brilliant reader of Mishima and a scholar with an eye for the cultural roles of fiction, unravels the author's life and politics: his affection for Western culture, his family and his homosexuality, his brilliant writings, and his carefully premeditated career and death.

About the Author

Marguerite Yourcenar's (1903-1987) many works include A Coin in Nine Hands, Fires, Two Lives and a Dream, and A Blue Tale, all available from the University of Chicago Press.
