Stained Glass Elegies

Fiction by Shusaku Endo

Translated by Van C. Gessel

The arresting beauty of Shusaku Endo’s fiction is best known in the West through his highly acclaimed novels The Samurai and Silence. His consummately wrought short stories, with their worlds of deep shadows and achieved clarity, are less familiar. The dozen stories of Stained Glass Elegies, selected by the author together with his translator, display the full range of Endo’s talents in short fiction.
