Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this moving novel, a group of Japanese tourists, each of whom is wrestling with his or her own demons, travels to the River Ganges on a pilgrimage of grace.

Synopsis:

"Endo has successfully dramatized the discovery that the sacred river of humanity flows within ourselves."--National Catholic Reporter

About the Author

Shusaku Endo was born in Tokyo in 1923 and died in 1996. After his parents divorced, he and his mother converted to Catholicism--a faith which is central to many of his tales. He is widely regarded as Japan's leading writer and has won all his country's major literary prizes, including the Akutagawa, the Noma, the Shincho, and the Tanizaki.

While Deep River is not a book I would have normally picked up on my own, it is a striking novel on religions in the Eastern world, from an East Asian worldview perspective. Following a group of Japanese, Deep River explores their personal stories and how that might give them reason to find peace in the Hindu holy river of the River Ganges. Listening to their stories, you are filled with a deep heaviness and can understand why the River Ganges is a place for peace for millions upon millions of people.
