The hunting gun by Yasushi Inoue( Book )
128 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Hunting Gun follows the consequences of a tragic love affair. Told from the viewpoints of three different women, this is a story of the psychological impact of illicit love. First viewed through the eyes of Shoko, who learns of the affair through reading her mother's diary, then through the eyes of Midori, who had long known about the affair of her husband with Saiko, and finally through the eyes of Saiko herself. This novella is incredibly powerful, with universal resonance and a true modern classic of the 20th century

More than a thousand years ago, an extraordinary trove of early Buddhist sutras and other scriptures was secreted away in caves near the Silk Road city of Tun-huang. But who hid this magnificent treasure and why' In Tun-huang, the great modern Japanese novelist Yasushi Inoue tells the story of Chao Hsing-te, a young Chinese man whose accidental failure to take the all-important exam that will qualify him as a high government official leads to a chance encounter that draws him farther and farther into the wild and contested lands west of the Chinese Empire. Here he finds love, distinguishes himself in battle, and ultimately devotes himself to the strange task of depositing the scrolls in the caves where, many centuries later, they will be rediscovered. A book of magically vivid scenes, fierce passions, and astonishing adventures, Tun-huang is also a profound and stirring meditation on the mystery of history and the hidden presence of the past

Dans le Japon du XVIe siècle, les seigneurs se disputent âprement leurs territoires : de bataille en bataille, c'est toujours un nouvel opposant plus dangereux qui se profile à l'horizon, dans un climat de violence où la force, la ruse et le courage ouvrent seuls les chemins du pouvoir. De cette période de chaos se détache une figure tout aussi prodigieuse, Yamamoto Kansuke, décrit comme nain, borgne, boiteux, de teint noir et marqué de petite vérole, devenu le stratège génial et secret du seigneur du clan des Takeda. Porteur d'un rêve immense, celui de l'unité du Japon, fidèle à son maître et à sa concubine Yubu, qu'il vénère pour sa beauté et son caractère indomptable, il mourra sans avoir vu se réaliser la vision qui soutient son existence
