Sailor Who Fell from Grace with the Sea by Y Mishima
Book DescriptionYukio Mishima s "The Sailor Who Fell From Grace With the Sea" explores the vicious nature of youth that is sometimes mistaken for innocence. Thirteen-year-old Noboru is a member of a gang of highly philosophical teenage boys who reject the tenets of the adult world to them, adult life is illusory, hypocritical, and sentimental. When Noboru s widowed mother is romanced by Ryuji, a sailor, Noboru is thrilled. He idolizes this rugged man of the sea as a hero. But his admiration soon turns to hatred, as Ryuji forsakes life onboard the ship for marriage, rejecting everything Noboru holds sacred. Upset and appalled, he and his friends respond to this apparent betrayal with a terrible ferocity."

Author Biography - Y Mishima
Yukio Mishima was born in Tokyo in 1925. He graduated from Tokyo Imperial University s School of Jurisprudence in 1947. His first published book, "The Forest in Full Bloom," appeared in 1944 and he established himself as a major author with "Confessions of a Mask "(1949). From then until his death he continued to publish novels, short stories, and plays each year. His crowning achievement, "The Sea of Fertility" tetralogy which contains the novels "Spring Snow" (1969), "Runaway Horses" (1969), "The Temple of Dawn" (1970), and "The Decay of the Angel "(1971) is considered one of the definitive works of twentieth century Japanese fiction. In 1970, at the age of 45 and the day after completing the last novel in the "Fertility" series, Mishima committed "seppuku" (ritual suicide) a spectacular death that attracted worldwide attention."
