Overview

A portrait of a marriage in which lofty principles clash fatally with appetite and ambition–featuring a middle-aged restaurant owner who is “the biggest and the most profound thing Mishima has done so far in an already distinguished career” (The New Yorker).

“One of the outstanding writers of the world.” The New York Times

For years Kazu has run her fashionable restaurant with a combination of charm and shrewdness. But when the middle-aged entrepreneur falls in love with one of her clients, an aristocratic retired politician, she renounces her business in order to become his wife. In time, however, Kazu decides to resurrect her husband’s political career. She embarks on a series of compromises and evasions that will force her to choose between her marriage and the demands of her irrepressible vitality.
