The conflict between traditional and modern Japanese culture is at the heart of this novel. Kaname is a smug, modern man living in a modern marriage. He gamely allows his wife to become the lover of another man, an act that does not cure the profound sadness at the heart of their relationship. So Kaname gradually retreats into the protection of traditional rituals, attitudes and tastes, eventually making love to Ohisa, his father-in-law's old-fashioned mistress, as he abandons the modern world entirely. The novel's other characters, including Kaname's wife, his lover, his father-in-la

31 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 965 libraries worldwide
Widely considered to be a classic, this essay on Japanese aesthetics by a major author ranges from the patina of lacquerware and the custom of moon-viewing to monastery toilets and the lighting in a brothel, while contrasting the Japanese sense of subtlety and nuance with Western imports such as electric lighting
Quicksand by Junʼichirō Tanizaki( Book )
19 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 726 libraries worldwide
Partly a black comedy - the plot sometimes resembles bedroom farce - partly an exploration of sexual obsession and pain, Quicksand is the last major Tanizaki novel to be translated, largely because of the extreme difficulty in capturing the narrator's precise tone in English. In this Howard Hibbett has succeeded brilliantly. As a master-work on the level of Some Prefer Nettles and Diary of a Mad Old Man, and as a triumph of the translator's art, Quicksand is both important and utterly engrossing
A cat, a man, and two women : stories by Junʼichirō Tanizaki( Book )
18 editions published between 1990 and 1992 in English and held by 686 libraries worldwide
A novella and two shorter pieces are variations on a favorite theme: dominance and submission in private relationships. The "man" in the title piece is a typical Tanizaki hero caught up in a war between his former wife and her willful young successor. "The little kingdom" describes the shifting relationship between a hard-pressed schoolteacher and a small but indomitable pupil determined to establish his own rule. The book ends with a sly portrait of a self-important academic, seen from the point of view of a journalist. In a series of interviews where the professor responds to questions merely with grunts the journalist discovers a scandalous hidden side

In these seven stories, Tanizaki, the author of The Makioka Sisters explores the territory where love becomes self-annihilation, where the contemplation of beauty gives way to fetishism, and where tradition becomes an instrument of refined cruelty. A young man is erotically imprisoned by the memory of his mother. A tattoo artist transforms the body of an exquisite woman into teeming canvas of her inner nature. A beautiful blink musician exacts the ultimate sacrifice from the man who both her lover and her disciple. These and other gripping scenarios of possession are told with such
