Description - Diary Of A Mad Old Man by Jun'ichiro Tanizaki

Tanizaki's last novel - written during his final illness, echoes his own life. Moving and powerful, it takes the form of an old man's diary, where he records his struggle with his self-image, and the manifestations of age, and his growing desire for his beautiful, Westernised daughter-in-law. Between them, the two characters embody Japan past and present.
