Some Prefer Nettles, Paperback / softback Book

Some Prefer Nettles Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

The marriage of Kaname and Misako is disintegrating: whilst seeking passion and fulfilment in the arms of others, they contemplate the humiliation of divorce.

Misako's father believes their relationship has been damaged by the influence of a new and alien culture, and so attempts to heal the breach by educating his son-in-law in the time-honoured Japanese traditions of aesthetic and sensual pleasure.

The result is an absorbing, chilling conflict between ancient and modern, young and old.
