Wong Casandra is on page 12 of 320 of The Summer of the Ubume: The translation is top-notch, and reads as smoothly as butter sliding down your throat. That and the male leads are extremely likeable middle-aged cynics. Throw in their wry sense of humour and a palatable aura of suspense, I think I am in for an engaging ride.

Yukio Mishima
“Dreams, memories, the sacred--they are all alike in that they are beyond our grasp. Once we are even marginally separated from what we can touch, the object is sanctified; it acquires the beauty of the unattainable, the quality of the miraculous. Everything, really, has this quality of sacredness, but we can desecrate it at a touch. How strange man is! His touch defiles and yet he contains the source of miracles.”
Yukio Mishima, Spring Snow

José Ortega y Gasset
“Tell me what you pay attention to and I will tell you who you are.”
José Ortega y Gasset

Natsume Sōseki
“You seem to be under the impression that there is a special breed of bad humans. There is no such thing as a stereotype bad man in this world. Under normal conditions, everybody is more or less good, or, at least, ordinary. But tempt them, and they may suddenly change. That is what is so frightening about men.”
Natsume Sōseki, Kokoro

Natsume Sōseki
“I often laughed, and you often gave me a dissatisfied look, till you pressed me to unfold my past before you as if it were a roll of pictures. It was then I felt respect for you. Because you unreservedly showed me your resolution to catch something alive in my being, and to sip the warm blood running in my body, by cutting my heart. At that time, I was still living, and did not want to die. So I rejected your request, promising to satisfy you some day. Now I am going to destroy my heart myself, and pour my blood into your veins. I shall be happy if a new life can enter into your bosom, when my heart has stopped beating.”
Natsume Sōseki, Kokoro

Natsume Sōseki
“You see, loneliness is the price we have to pay for being born in this modern age, so full of freedom, independence, and our own egoistical selves.”
