I didn't like all these stories but I still enjoyed this collection a lot. I love the way Endo gets under the skin of the characters he writes about. He brings them to life so wonderfully. And he writes about universal themes like finding one's place in the world, loneliness, faith or the lack of it etc. This makes it not only a fitting introduction to one of Japan's greatest writers, but also permits us to share in some of the insights he offers. At times, I was surprised and challenged.
