Mishima’s Sword: Travels in Search of a Samurai Legend
Christopher Ross (au)
In 1970, the world-famous Japanese writer Yukio Mishima plunged a knife into his belly and was decapitated using his own antique sword. Christopher Ross wondered, What on earth happened to Mishima’s sword? And so he sets off for Tokyo on a journey into the heart of the Mishima legend. He enters a hidden world populated by a startling range of characters who knew Mishima -- craftsmen and critics, soldiers and swordsmen, boyfriends and biographers. The trail Ross follows inspires a travelogue of the most eye-opening -- and occasionally bizarre -- sort, a window into the real Japan that tourists never see, with digressions on socks and the code of the samurai, nosebleeds and metallurgy . . . even how to dress for suicide.
