Twenty years later, Hamada works as a clerk at a conservative university, his war resistance a dark secret of the past that present-day events force into the light, confronting him with unexpected consequences of his refusal to conform. Maruyas masterpiece is an unusual story of a deeply taboo subject in twentieth- century Japanese society: resistance to the draft in World War II. First published in Japanese in 1966, this debut novel by the critically acclaimed author of Singular Rebellion creates an unparalleled portrait of a man at odds with his society, and with himself.
