Diary of a Mad Old Man Paperback – 6 October 2000 by Junichiro Tanizaki (Author)
At once hilarious and sad, Tanizaki's last novel - written during his final illness - echoes his own life.
While recovering from a stroke, seventy-seven-year-old Utsugi turns to his diary to wryly record his struggle with his ageing body and his growing desire for his beautiful daughter-in-law Satsuko, a chic, Westernised dancer with a shady past. Shining with a self-effacing humour, Tanizaki's last novel is a tragicomedy about desire and the will to survive.
