Diary Of A Mad Old Man, Paperback / softback Book

Diary Of A Mad Old Man Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

While recovering from a stroke, seventy-seven-year-old Utsugi turns to his diary to wryly record his struggle with his ageing body and his growing desire for his beautiful daughter-in-law Satsuko, a chic, Westernised dancer with a shady past.

Shining with a self-effacing humour, Tanizaki's last novel is a tragicomedy about desire and the will to survive.
