The Secret History of the Lord of Musashi and Arrowroot: Two Novels

The Secret History of the Lord of Musashi & Arrowroot - Jun'ichirō Tanizaki, Anthony H. Chambers Without giving too much away, this through a series of bizarre tales and adventures, develops into a full blown sexual fetish, which follows him and comes to dominate his life and his view of it, regardless of his ability as a warrior, what he becomes is as a servant to his warped appetites, all he does is in homage to that desire.This was one strange and yet strangely enjoyable tale, Tanizaki’s take on the idea of Samurai legends & their histories, is as though through a fairground mirror, it twists and contorts the classic traditions and the ideals of nobility.The tale bowls you along with the narrator more an old gossip in some surreal drama than a historian of worth. But the end result is a sly clever tale that for all its deviant nature is wonderful.http://parrishlantern.blogspot.com/2011/08/junichiro-tanizaki.html
