Confessions of a Mask

by Yukio Mishima - £12.99  Peter Owen Ltd (2007)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780720612851 | ISBN 10: 0720612853

This autobiographical novel, regarded as Mishima’s finest book, is the haunting story of a Japanese boy’s development toward a homosexual identity during and after the Second World War.
 
Detailing his progress from an isolated childhood through adolescence to manhood, including an abortive love affair with a classmate’s sister, it reports the inner life of a boy’s preoccupation with death. This fourth reprint attests to the power of the novel’s enduring themes of fantasy, despair and alienation.
