Childhood Years : A Memoir Paperback / softback

Part of the Michigan Monograph Series in Japanese Studies series

In Childhood Years, originally published serially in a literary magazine between 1955 and 1956, Tanizaki Jun'ichiro (1886-1965) takes a meandering look back on his early life in Tokyo.

He reflects on his upbringing, family, and the capital city with a conversational - and not necessarily honest - eye, offering insights into his later life and his writing.
