No reason for murder by Ayako Sono( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in English and held by 463 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Set on the rural Miura peninsula, southwest of Tokyo, the story focuses on the relationship between two very different people: Yukiko, a humble, single Christian woman with strong principles; and Fujio, an undisciplined social misfit and womanizer who loathes the social mores of his fellow human beings. Yukiko turns out to be the one woman Fujio cannot seduce, and she provides a moral lifeline for his confused psychological state as he sinks ever further into a mire of rape, murder and incarceration." "Ayako Sono, known for her concern with Japan's social problems and deteriorating moral principles, presents a rich tapestry of characters, including a smothering and indulgent mother, a high school dropout, a department store clerk, a precocious young boy; a Japanese Catholic priest, a female lawyer, lonely housewives, pestering reporters and persistent policemen." "The psychology of a serial murderer and a depiction of the workings of the Japanese police and media are topics rarely found in literature from Japan. Against that background, Ayako Sono delicately probes into the reasons behind love, hate, and even murder."--Jacket

Miracles : a novel by Ayako Sono( Book )

3 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Closely mirroring the author's own travels in the early 1970s throughout Poland and Italy in pursuit of the miracles ascribed to St. Maximilian Kolbe, the work takes the reader on a geographical and spiritual journey of immense riches. Sono's narrator sensitively explores cultural differences, religious faith, science and the question of miracles, and the atrocity of Auschwitz where St. Kolbe offered up his life in exchange for a condemned prisoner. Already described as a "minor classic" of Japanese literature before it was translated into English, Doak's translation makes available this remarkable work by one of postwar Japan's most talented writers to a broader international audience
