Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
To this haunting novel of wasted love, Kawabata brings the brushstroke suggestiveness and astonishing grasp of motive that earned him the Nobel Prize for Literature. As he chronicles the affair between a wealthy dilettante and the mountain geisha who gives herself to him without illusions or regrets, one of Japan's greatest writers creates a work that is dense in implication and exalting in its sadness.

Review:
"'Snow Country' is distinctly superior to 'Thousand Cranes', I should think. If Kawabata is to be prized as a psychologist and more particularly for his female psychology, then there is more interesting psychology and more particularly female psychology to be found here. If he is to be prized as a stylist, as a prose writer in the tradition of haiku...then there are more haiku and more interesting ones to be found here."

D. J. Enright, New York Review of Books, 4/27/1969

Review:
"'Snow Country is a work of beauty and strangeness, one of the most distinguihed and moving Japanese novels to have appeared in this century."

New York Herald Tribune (1924-1966)
