• "Clear and powerful"

  • "An esoteric masterpiece"

    Yukio Mishima
  • "A subtle examination of universal female behavior"

  • "[Enchi’s] allusions to the masks of No plays and to the classic The Tale of Genji, the brilliant way she layers and interweaves the ancient, the more recent past and the present are haunting and rich. A fictional enchantment"

    Publishers Weekly
  • "Enchi’s writing has some of the same amniotic fluidity as Tolstoy’s, an almost bodily, floating immersion into the effortless habitat of the story"

    The American Reader
