Friends make an appearance along the way - doctors, musicians, other writers - as do the themes that have preoccupied Oe all his life: the rights of the underprivileged; the moral authority of the survivors of the atomic bombing; the mystery of language. But his thoughts keep circling back to his family - to the healing power of the family, and the unwitting courage we can all find in ourselves. The book is illustrated with sketches of family life painted by his wife.
