I wonder how much the novel parallels the life of the author. Nevertheless, it depicts the frenzied life of big business melded with the culture of older and modern Japan and a young man's efforts to assimilate all these factors into a life of his own. To complicate matters, he is haunted by the past life of his blood family in the US and his attempts to integrate into his adopted family in Japan. It is a fascinating story that keeps the reader guessing til the end what this young man will decide to do after living and working in Tokyo.
