Confessions of a Mask Yukio Mishima

This autobiographical novel, translated from the Japanese, is the haunting story of a young boy’s journey toward a homosexual identity during and after the Second World War. A novel of homoerotic sadomasochism, it narrates the inner life of a boy’s preoccupation with death and desire. In 1970 Mishima publicly committed seppuku, ritual suicide by disembowelment. His work is twisted but brilliant.
