"Bird, the protagonist of a Personal Matter, is a frustrated young intellectual in a failing marriage whose utopian dream is shattered when his wife gives birth to a brain-damaged child. More than once when confronted with a problem, he has "cast himself adrift on a sea of whiskey like a besotted Robinson Crusoe", but he has never faced a crisis as personal or grave as the prospect of life imprisonment in the cage of his infant son. Should he keep the baby? Dare he kill it? Before he makes his final decision, Bird's entire past rises up before him, revealing itself to be a nightmare of deceit."--Back cover

Hiroshima notes by Kenzaburō Ōe( Book )
57 editions published between 1965 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,116 libraries worldwide
Hiroshima Notes is a moving statement from Japan's most celebrated living writer on the meaning of the Hiroshima bombing and its terrible legacy. Kenzaburo Oe's account of the lives of the many victims of Hiroshima - the young, the old, women and children - and the valiant efforts of the doctors who care for them, both immediately after the atomic blast and in the years to come, reveals the horrific extent of the devastation wrought. In Hiroshima Notes, Oe offers a sensitive portrayal of the people of the city - the 'human face' in the midst of atomic destruction. The lives Oe describes and his insights into the nature of human dignity are an indictment of the Nuclear Age as powerful as the ruins in the Hiroshima Peace Park

"[Kogito Choko] returns to his hometown village in search of a red suitcase rumored to hold documents revealing the details of his father's death during World War II, details that will serve as the foundation for his new, and final, novel. Since his youth, renowned novelist Kogito Choko planned to fictionalize his father's fatal drowning in order to fully process the loss. Stricken with guilt and regret over his failure to rescue his father, Choko has long been driven to discover why his father was boating on the river in a torrential storm. Though he remembers overhearing his father and a group of soldiers discussing an insurgent scheme to stage a suicide attack on Emperor Mikado, Choko cannot separate his memories from imagination and his family is hesitant to reveal the entire story. When the contents of the trunk turn out to offer little clarity, Choko abandons the novel in creative despair. Floundering as an artist, he's haunted by fear that he may never write his tour de force. But when he collaborates with an avant-garde theater troupe dramatizing his early novels, Choko is revitalized by revisiting his formative work and he finds the will to continue investigating his father's demise" --
