Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The life of the pre-World War II Japanese woman was indeed a hard one by modern standards, as is so ably illustrated in this work by Uno. Not for the faint-hearted, this tale of self-discovery focuses on a young woman's relationship with various men, showing how the individual can be subsumed by society (i.e., male Japanese society). Copeland has given us a fluid translation that reads correctly and helps to evoke time and place. Uno's work is a boon to those who wish to study women's roles in other cultures and is a testament to her role in her world, which has been substantial. Raconteur, author, magazine publisher, and woman of the world, she has made an important contribution to Japanese literature, and one hopes for further translation of her works. Essential for women's studies collections and highly recommended as general adult fiction.-- Mike Heines, Rome Laboratory Technical Lib . , N.Y.
