This is my favorite Yukio Mishima book, I've read almost everything he wrote that has been translated into English, this story has many elements; the ideas of friendship, love, physical handicap, betrayal, death. This is a serious book and very rewarding to read.

If you haven't yet read Mishima, this would be a good starting point this book gives a good introduction to Mishima's themes (death, beauty, youth, nihilism) and is much more accessible than the Sea of Fertility tetralogy. The darkness and sharpness of Mishima's vision is present here in the study of an acolyte's incerasingly detached internal world. The translation is beautiful and Mishima's writing talent, especially his knack for analogies, shines through. This hardcover edition has a nice print and is definitely worth the extra few bucks over the paperback.

If you like to read the best modern Japanese literature, you should choose this book. The theme is heavy and you may feel kind of depressed... but it has a beautiful ending. Knowing the fact that Mishima committed HARAKIRI suicide in his real life might help you to taste this story.
