Product description

Review

Somehow - and this is what gives his art such unquestionable stature - Oe manages to smuggle a comic thread in all this tragedy (Independent)

Though thoroughly Japanese, Oe, in the range of hope and despair he covers, seems to me to have in him a touch of Dostoevsky (Henry Miller)

A new pinnacle in postwar Japanese fiction (Yukio Mishima)

Book Description

The key work by the Nobel Prize winner, The Silent Cry encapsulates 'Japanese history, society and politics within a single, tight narrative' (Susan Napier)
