really liked it

I think that the author’s friendship with Mishima (he translated several of his books) benefited this book immensely. It gave him a level of access to family and friends that some stranger would never of had. Even though it is clear the author has deep affection for Mishima, it is not an overtly biased depiction of his life. The author sheds light equally on Mishima’s talents as a writer, but also does not shy away from exposing his hypocritical, and fascist tendencies.
