Reviews

  • Mishima's greatest novel, and one of the greatest of the past century

    The Times
  • Explores the viciousness that lies beneath what we imagine to be innocence

    Independent
  • Told with Mishima's fierce attention to naturalistic detail, the grisly tale becomes painfully convincing and yields a richness of psychological and mythic truth

    Sunday Times
  • Coolly exact with his characters and their honourable motives. His aim is to make the destruction of the sailor by his love seem as inevitable as the ocean

    Guardian
  • Mishima's imagery is as artful as a Japanese flower arrangement

    New York Times
