Product description

The exquisite last novel from Nobel Prize-winning author Yasunari Kawabata

Ineko has lost the ability to see things. At first it was a ping-pong ball, then it was her fiance. The doctors call it 'body blindness', and she is placed in a psychiatric clinic to recover. As Ineko's mother and fiance walk along the riverbank after visiting time, they wonder: is her condition a form of madness - or an expression of love? Exploring the distance between us, and what we say without words, Kawabata's transcendent final novel is the last word from a master of Japanese literature.

'Lusciously peculiar' Paris Review
