Quicksand by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

68 editions published between 1931 and 2010 in 6 languages and held by 832 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Partly a black comedy - the plot sometimes resembles bedroom farce - partly an exploration of sexual obsession and pain, Quicksand is the last major Tanizaki novel to be translated, largely because of the extreme difficulty in capturing the narrator's precise tone in English. In this Howard Hibbett has succeeded brilliantly. As a master-work on the level of Some Prefer Nettles and Diary of a Mad Old Man, and as a triumph of the translator's art, Quicksand is both important and utterly engrossing
A cat, a man, and two women : stories by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A novella and two shorter pieces are variations on a favorite theme: dominance and submission in private relationships. The "man" in the title piece is a typical Tanizaki hero caught up in a war between his former wife and her willful young successor. "The little kingdom" describes the shifting relationship between a hard-pressed schoolteacher and a small but indomitable pupil determined to establish his own rule. The book ends with a sly portrait of a self-important academic, seen from the point of view of a journalist. In a series of interviews where the professor responds to questions merely with grunts the journalist discovers a scandalous hidden side

In these seven stories, Tanizaki, the author of The Makioka Sisters explores the territory where love becomes self-annihilation, where the contemplation of beauty gives way to fetishism, and where tradition becomes an instrument of refined cruelty. A young man is erotically imprisoned by the memory of his mother. A tattoo artist transforms the body of an exquisite woman into teeming canvas of her inner nature. A beautiful blink musician exacts the ultimate sacrifice from the man who both her lover and her disciple. These and other gripping scenarios of possession are told with such

The reed cutter and Captain Shigemoto's mother : two novellas by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Reed Cutter has a contemporary setting, though it might have taken place any film in the past thousand years. On a fine September evening, the narrator decides to make a solitary excursion to the site of an ancient imperial palace south of Kyoto, a place now lost and overgrown near the banks of a river. Musing upon old poems, passages of history and topographical antiquities, he eventually finds himself among the reeds of a sandbar sipping sake from the bottle he has brought with him, watching the moon rise over the river, and scribbling bits of verse in his notebook. Suddenly he is surprised to discover that he is not alone. A strange man joins him and begins to tell a most extraordinary tale about his father, about a scene glimpsed in a moonlit garden forty years before, and about a mysterious woman who has become a lasting obsession
