Junichiro Tanizaki

Japanese writer

A tour de force—catnip.

The New York Times

Even his lighter-hearted fictions make us hold our breath, and the endings don’t let us quite exhale.

The New Yorker

Tanizaki’s a really great writer. There’s a humor there that you don’t get in Yukio Mishima. Mishima wouldn’t know a joke if it flew up his nose and died there. But Tanizaki has got this warm ticklishness to his strangeness.

—David Mitchell
