Using a traditional informal essay style, Tanizaki retrieves his childhood years in roughly chronological order, with the exuberance and relish of a master storyteller. What finally emerges- through deeply affecting character sketches, hilarious anecdotes and images of great sensuous beauty- is the very texture of life in the Shitamachi area of Tokyo in the last decades of the nineteenth century.
