One of the most influential figures in modern Japanese fiction, Yasunari Kawabata is treasured for the intensity of his perception and the compressed elegance of his style. This new collection compiles twenty-two stories now appearing in English for the first time in book form. In moving selections that sketch the outlines of the young author's life of survivorship, Martin Holman's graceful translation captures the delicate nuances of Kawabata's enduring prose.
