About This Book
Novel by Dazai Osamu, published in 1947 as Shayo. It is a tragic, vividly
painted story of life in postwar Japan. The narrator is Kazuko, a young woman
born to gentility but now impoverished. Though she wears Western clothes, her
outlook is Japanese; her life is static, and she recognizes that she is
spiritually empty. In the course of the novel she survives the deaths of her
aristocratic mother and her sensitive, drug-addicted brother Naoji, an
intellectual ravaged by his own and by society's spiritual failures. She also
spends a sad, sordid night with the dissipated writer Uehara, and she conceives
a child in the hope that it will be the first step in a moral revolution.
