About this title:
Now, as the mature Ono struggles through the aftermath of that war, his memories of his youth and of the ?floating world??the nocturnal world of pleasure, entertainment, and drink?offer him both escape and redemption, even as they punish him for betraying his early promise. Indicted by society for its defeat and reviled for his past aesthetics, he relives the passage through his personal history that makes him both a hero and a coward but, above all, a human being.
