Jacket design by Fumi Komatsu. keywords: January 14. inventory # 14426. FROM THE PUBLISHER - Even those who praised THE TEMPLE OF THE GOLDEN PAVILION SO highly will be as- tonished at the qualities of Yukio Mishima’s new novel, which dramatizes the classical conflict between puritan and hedonist against the background of Tokyo’s sophisticated night life. Kazu, one of the leading figures of the entertainment world, is a woman blazing with vitality. She is the mistress of the Setsugoan Restaurant, a luxurious refuge for leading financiers, politicians, and diplomats. If she is sure of anything as she takes her morning walks in her cherished garden, it is that she will never becloud her life and mind again by falling in love. But she is captivated by the distinction and authority of a guest, Noguchi, aristocrat and intellectual, once a cabinet minister. Kazu and Noguchi are profoundly drawn to each other at first, and only time and spiritual agony teach them how mismatched they are. The rift begins when Noguchi embarks on a high-minded political campaign, observing all the rules of propriety; and when Kazu, a woman of the people and a natural politician, unreservedly throws herself and her resources into the campaign without his knowledge. When Noguchi discovers what she has been doing, he is revealed in scene after dramatic scene as an unbending moralist with the highest ideals-a man who tries to apply his narrow sense of rectitude both to politics and to his marriage. Noguchi stands fully revealed in the climactic scene in which he calls her efforts a betrayal and equates unfaithfulness in politics with unfaithfulness in marriage. Kazu is faced with the choice of obeying a code of conduct she does not understand, which smells to her of death, and of losing the Setsugoan, or of going back to her former life in defiance of her husband. The outcome reveals Mishima’s full range of power as a novelist. Yukio Mishima (whose real name was Kimitake Hiraoka) was born in Tokyo in 1925. His principal works of fiction-all available in English-are: CONFESSIONS OF A MASK; THIRST FOR LOVE; FORBIDDEN COLORS; DEATH IN MIDSUMMER; THE SOUND OF WAVES; THE TEMPLE OF THE GOLDEN PAVILION; AFTER THE BANQUET; THE SAILOR WHO FELL FROM GRACE WITH THE SEA; SPRING SNOW; RUNAWAY HORSES; THE TEMPLE OF DAWN; and THE DECAY OF THE ANGEL. He died in 1970, and is survived by his wife and two children. . Previous Owner's Name In Front, Otherwise Very Good In Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory #
