One by Kathryn Otoshi( Book )

69 editions published between 1931 and 2010 in 7 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 )

55 editions published between 936 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 773 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

106 editions published between 1924 and 2016 in 8 languages and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chronicles the obsessive love of Joji, an engineer in his thirties, for a fifteen-year-old bar hostess who reminds him of Mary Pickford
The reed cutter and Captain Shigemoto's mother : two novellas by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

30 editions published between 1933 and 2015 in English and Japanese and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Captain Shigemoto's Mother is more violent but no less strange. It takes place in tenth-century Kyoto, in a world - the world of Genji - in which poetry and brutality, power and sexual impulse, shape the lives of the courtiers. Beginning in an almost whimsical vein with an account of the amorous exploits of a Heian Don Juan called Heiju, it gradually shifts mood to focus on three people - Shihei the powerful Minister of the Left; his doddering uncle Kunitsune; and Kunitsune's ravishing and much-younger wife, a woman known only as Shigemoto's mother. How Shihei succeeds in taking Kunitsune's wife away from him in the course of a bizarre and drunken party is a story as shocking - and memorable - as anything Tanizaki ever wrote

Seven Japanese tales by Jun'ichirō Tanizaki( Book )

38 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 96 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
