The Sailor Who Fell from Grace With the Sea : Vintage Classics Japanese Series, Paperback / softback Book

The Sailor Who Fell from Grace With the Sea : Vintage Classics Japanese Series Paperback / softback

Part of the Vintage Classic Japanese Series series

Description

VINTAGE JAPANESE CLASSICS - five masterpieces of Japanese fiction in gorgeous new gift editions. A band of savage thirteen-year-old boys reject the adult world as illusory, hypocritical, and sentimental, and train themselves in a brutal callousness they call 'objectivity'.

When the mother of one of them begins an affair with a ship's officer, he and his friends idealise the man at first; but it is not long before they conclude that he is in fact soft and romantic.

They regard this disillusionment as an act of betrayal on his part - and the retribution is deliberate and horrifying.
