Thousand Cranes

Yasunari Kawabata

Publisher: Vintage Books

Format: Paperback

With a restraint that barely conceals the ferocity of his characters' passions, one of Japan's great postwar novelists tells the luminous story of Kikuji and the tea party he attends with Mrs. Ota, the rival of his dead father's mistress. A tale of desire, regret, and sensual nostalgia, every gesture has a meaning, and even the most fleeting touch or casual utterance has the power to illuminate entire lives—sometimes in the same moment that it destroys them. Translated from the Japanese by Edward G. Seidensticker." A novel of exquisite artistry...rich suggestibility...and a story that is human, vivid and moving." —New York Herald TribuneKawabata is a poet of the gentlest shades, of the evanescent, the imperceptible. This is a tragedy in soft focus, but its passions are fierce." —Commonweal
