Product Description

Tanizaki's masterpiece is the story of the extinction of a great family through pride and over-refinement. It is a loving and nostalgic recreation of the sumptuous, intricate upper-class life of Osaka immediately before World War Two. With surgical realism and precision, Tanizaki lays bare the sinews of pride, and in the finest qualities of the Japanese tradition, brings a vanished era to vibrant life.
