Summary: This is an exquisitely nuanced novel about the allure of Japanese tradition--and about the profound disquiet that accompanied its passing. This is the tale of Kaname and his wife, Misako, living in Tokyo in the 1920s. Having long since stopped sleeping together, they share a parody of a Western marriage, while Kaname sanctions his wife's liaison with another man. At the heart of this arrangement lies a sadness that impels Kaname to take refuge in the past, in the ser ...show moreene rituals of the classical puppet theater, and in a growing fixation with his father-in-law's mistress, O-hisa.
