Recommended for: Chuck Palahniuk
Read in March, 2001

The topics that Mishima tackles in this book are complex and treated with the subtlety they deserve as he searches for a quiet nobility and understanding of the motives and passions for his characters. In showing them respect even when they are at their worst he demonstrates his remarkable ability as a writer. A textbook example of how to show restraint while taking on issues that were very much considered cutting edge and taboo at the time that he wrote this work. I would recommend him to Chuck Palahniuk in the hope that some of it might rub off on him.
