Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The legendary Japanese master?s Winter Sleep takes you into the hardboiled world of art — where ex-cons are philosophers, young lovers are combustible, and aesthetics is life.

Nakagi, an ex-con painter who has sequestered himself in a mountain cabin, is trying to elevate his art. The only thing breaking his solitude are the visits of two women: an art dealer who wants him to produce the sort of paintings that she would like to buy from him, and a young, aspiring, and soulful apprentice. When Nakagi welcomes an escaped felon into the emotionally fraught fold, and begins to teach him to paint as well, Winter Sleep awakens to a literally incendiary climax.

Review:

"Kitakata...[is] part Spillane, part Dostoevsky, but always hard-boiled." Hackwriters.com

Synopsis:

A story of an ex-con painter who, in searching to elevate his art, takes on two students to literally explosive effect.
