From the Back Cover:

At the outset of this powerful story we find a Doctor Suguro in a backwater of modern-day Tokyo practicing expert medicine in a dingy office. He is haunted by his past experience and it is that past which the novel unfolds.

About the Author:

Shusaku Endo (1923–1996) is widely regarded as one of the most important Japanese authors of the late 20th century. He won many major literary awards and was nominated for the Nobel Prize several times. His novels, which have been translated into 28t languages, include Silence, Wonderful Fool, Deep River and The Samurai. His masterpiece Silence has recently been filmed by director Martin Scorsese. Michael Gallagher translates Japanese literature, and in 1973 his translation of Yukio Mishima’s Spring Snow was a finalist for the National Book Award.
