What Shusaku Endo does in this novel is to let you experience in your own bones how the spirit of certain age is replaced by another. I know it is not very precise to talk about the spirit of a nation or of a people, but that is the point of the novel- that such a "thing", which exists, cannot be properly expressed in abstract concepts. What Endo's novel does is make you feel the loss of something valuable. The loss becomes your loss.

Shusaku Endo is a novelist who captures emotions and the events that change lives in subtle and dramatic ways. This is a novel about many things: love, betrayal, medical care, friendship, devotion, responsibility, and the myriad ways in which our actions impact others. He has a realism about his work that is fragile and breathtaking at once. In this story, he deftly goes back and forth from narrator Ozu to Ozu's son, Eiichi, sometimes in the present and often in pre-war Japan. We are brought from his school days in Nada where he meets his gangly, awkward friend Flatfish.
