Description:

Na-o-mi. The three syllables of this name, unusual in 1920s Japan, captivate a 28-year-old engineer, who soon becomes infatuated with the girl so named, a teenaged café waitress. Drawn to her Eurasian features and innocent demeanor, Joji is eager to whisk young Naomi away from the seamy underbelly of post—World War I Tokyo and to mold her into his ideal wife. But when the two come together to indulge their shared passion for Western culture, Joji discovers that Naomi is far from being the naïve girl of his fantasies, and his passion descends into a comically helpless masochism. A literary masterpiece that helped to establish Junichiro Tanizaki as Japan's greatest novelist, Naomi is both a hilarious story of one man's obsession and torment, and a brilliant evocation of a nation's cultural confusion.

A true Edokko (child of Tokyo), born in the low-lying merchant areas of the metropolis, Tanizaki lived his later years in the Kansai region and immersed himself in the traditions of the court culture of ancient Japan. He was also widely read in Western literature. A superb storyteller whose characters delight in the sensual, Tanizaki's tales often combine the erotic with details of traditional Japanese arts. He spent three years translating the eleventh-century novel The Tale of Genji into modern Japanese.
