Confessions of a Mask Yukio Mishima
This autobiographical novel, translated from the Japanese, is the haunting story of a young boyâ€™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 boyâ€™s preoccupation with death and desire. In 1970 Mishima publicly committed seppuku, ritual suicide by disembowelment. His work is twisted but brilliant.
