Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"The vivisection of captured U. S. personnel by Japanese doctors is hardly an appetizing subject for a novel, even though the vivisection is done 'in the interests of research,' a formula which excuses almost anything done these days in American graduate schools. But it is the reaction of one Japanese intern that interests Shusaku Endo, who treats his theme with a delicacy that sets this book above its gruesome details. Unfortunately, indifferent proofreading and awkward translation—can a person, for instance, be said to have 'stood sluggishly'?—set this work below the standards found in the recent excellent translation of Endo's Silence." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
