The Sound of Waves (Paperback)
Set in a remote fishing village in Japan, The Sound of Waves is a timeless story of first love. A young fisherman is entranced at the sight of the beautiful daughter of the wealthiest man in the village. They fall in love, but must then endure the calumny and gossip of the villagers.
"A story that is both happy and a work of art. . . . Altogether a joyous and lovely thing."
—The New York Times "Of such classic design its action might take place at any point across a thousand years."
—San Francisco Chronicle "Mishima is like Stendhal in his precise psychological analyses, like Dostoevsky in his explorations of darkly destructive personalities."
