Not sure what to make of this one … unsettling yet compelling. I’m about half way through and there is some fascinating writing, especially when Mishima explores the innermost thoughts and compulsions of his main characters. The psychological terrain he charts works like another narrative, another novel almost. I think it’s that aspect I’m enjoying most of all.

Yukio Mishima, The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea (Vintage, 1999) first published 1963.
