Publisher Comments:

A band of savage thirteen-year-old boys who reject the adult world as illusory, hypocritical, and sentimental, and train themselves in a brutal callousness they call 'objectivity.'

About the Author

Yukio Mishima was born in Tokyo in 1925. He graduated from Tokyo Imperial University, School of Jurisprudence, in 1947. His first published book, The Forest in Full Bloom, appeared in 1944. He established himself as a major author with Confessions of a Mask (1949) and from then until his death he continued to publish novels, short stories, and plays each year. In 1970, at the age of 45, Mishima committed seppuku (ritual suicide) — a spectacular death that attracted worldwide attention. To this day, he is widely considered to be one of the great masters of modern Japanese literature.

octavioaristi, April 12, 2007 (view all comments by octavioaristi)
Mishima has always lingered in the realm of values from a post-war Japanese social perspective, in which many concepts changed and adaptability became a must, giving free range to a way of life that could be well more "advanced" in western terms. Traditional Japanese ideas and costums were ingrained and new methods were implemented. In this novel, the stubborness of the youngsters persists no matter how violent they become, just to keep up a given modus-vivendi they could justify.
