Description

Little Clothbound Classics: irresistible, mini editions of short stories, novellas and essays from the world’s greatest writers, designed by the award-winning Coralie Bickford-Smith.

Tired of the bustling city, a man takes the train through the snow to Japan’s mountains, to meet with a geisha he believes he loves. Beautiful and innocent, she is tightly bound by the rules of a rural geisha, and lives a life of servitude and seclusion. Snow Country, Yasunari Kawabata’s masterpiece, is a delicate, subtle meditation on love and its limits.

‘A work of beauty and strangeness, one of the most distinguished and moving of Japanese novels’ New York Herald Tribune
