"Pulitzer Prize-winning war correspondent Paul BrinkleyRogers has lived an adventurous life all over the world. But there is one story he cannot forget: that of his haunting love affair with a mysterious older Japanese woman in 1959. Paul was a sailor aboard the USS ShangriLa that longago summer when he met Kaji Yukiko in the seaport of Yokosuka. A fierce intellectual, Yukiko shared her astonishing knowledge of literature, film, and poetry with Paul and encouraged, even demanded, that he use his gifts to become the writer he is today. When a member of the yakuza, Japan's brutal crime syndicate, attempted to kidnap Yukiko, Paul realized that there was much more to her--and to Japan in the devastating wake of World War II--than he saw at first glance."--Front jacket flap.

The writing is elegant, but the pace is a little slow.
