A shallow swath of the dust jacket is missing along the top edge of the front panel.

Quite rare, this posthumously published novel is by the well regarded translator of a number of older Japanese tales and historical legends. OCLC locates not a single copy held institutionally. The novel has a striking and unusual narrative style, is hip in diction and manner though perhaps somewhat didactic at the same time. NF/G++
