In praise of shadows by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

43 editions published between 1977 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,050 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Widely considered to be a classic, this essay on Japanese aesthetics by a major author ranges from the patina of lacquerware and the custom of moon-viewing to monastery toilets and the lighting in a brothel, while contrasting the Japanese sense of subtlety and nuance with Western imports such as electric lighting
The key by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

55 editions published between 1960 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,032 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of a dying marriage, told in the form of parallel diaries. After nearly 30 years of marriage, a dried-up, middle-aged professor frenziedly strives for new heights of carnal pleasure with his repressed, dissatisfied wife, resorting to stimulants galore for her. During the day, they record their adventures of the previous night
Quicksand by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

22 editions published between 1993 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 683 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 )

16 editions published between 1990 and 1995 in English and held by 665 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

Seven Japanese tales by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

40 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
