The Makioka Sisters

The Makioka Sisters

Junichirō Tanizaki

What Min Jin Lee Says: Like a classic 19th-century marriage plot novel but told with modern wisdom, Tanizaki’s The Makioka Sisters portrays a once-prominent Osaka family and the challenges they encounter while arranging a suitable marriage for one sister while contending with the defiant nature of another. In the context of post-World War II Japan and the period of Allied Occupation, the novel traces the engaging journeys of the Makioka women.

What They Say: “A subtle, moving novel” – The Times
