by Osamu Dazai

Regular price $23.00 SGD
Regular price Sale price $23.00 SGD

This powerful novel of a nation in social and moral crisis in the early postwar years probes the transition from a feudal Japan to an industrial society. The influence of this book, often considered Dazai's masterpiece, made the term "people of the setting sun"—the declining aristocracy—a permanent part of the Japanese language. Dazai's heroine, Kazuko, the strong-willed young aristocrat who deliberately abandons her class, stands as a symbol of the anomie that pervades so much of the modern world.
