  • Yasunari Kawabata's lusciously peculiar novel Dandelions was unfinished when he took his life in 1972. It's a story of love and loss and mania, told in sparse, arresting prose

    Paris Review
  • Kawabata's novels are among the most affecting and original works of our time

    New York Times Book Review
  • There are few other writers who could invoke such a lasting memory of a single image with so few words.

    San Francisco Chronicle
  • A literary habitat like no other?quietly devastating fiction. Behind a lyrical and understated surface, chaotic passions pulse
