"One of the finest historical novels written by anyone, anywhere . . . Flawless."
David Mitchell


"A remarkable work . . . sombre, delicate and startlingly empathetic."
John Updike


Recipient of the 1966 Tanizaki Prize, it has been called Endo's supreme achievement" and "one of the twentieth century's finest novels".
