The Pillow Book of Lady Wisteria - Paperback

2003, ISBN: 9780312983789

Hardcover, ID: 731673335

Paperback. Very Good., New York, New York, USA: Viking Penguin, 1989. BH5 - A tight, clean, sound copy with very minor overall shelf wear plus the front endpaper has been removed as part of the library's withdrawal process plus there are the usual library stamps and labels on the top outside paper edges, title page, and dedication page plus there is some light tape staining on the outside board surfaces from where the dust jacket was taped down to the boards. The dust jacket shows no visible signs of wear plus there is the usual library label on the spine plus it is still in the original library mylar sleeve. The story of a man who is the owner of a spectacular collection of Meissen porcelain which survived World War II and the years of Stalinism in Czechoslovakia and now rests in his two room flat in the city of Prague. He nurses a qualm that art collecting is a kind of idolatry. The book functions as a parable for the imagination as the personality and personhood of this main character is remodeled as each new detail of his life is uncovered. The author is a winner of the E. M. Forster Award of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Hawthronden Prize of the Society of Authors in Great Britain.

Sano Ichiro, Most Honorable Investigator of Events, Situations, and People, awakens from a turbulent dream into a real-life nightmare. Lord Matsudaira Mitsuyoshi, the shogun's cousin and heir, has been murdered after a night of debauchery in the city's pleasure quarter... Comes A Danger All Too Close To Home. . . The matter requires Sano's personal attention-more personal than Sano at first imagines. For he soon discovers that Mitsuyoshi's companion for the evening was none other than the alluring Lady Wisteria, a woman whom Sano himself once knew intimately before he was married to his beloved wife, Reiko. But the memory of Wisteria still stirs him, and it is with both dismay and relief that he learns she has vanished along with her pillow book, a diary that may contain valuable clues. The circumstances trouble him, as does the possibility that he and Wisteria might meet again with dangerous consequences". . .. First St. Martin's Mass Market Paperback. Mass Market Paperback. Very Good/No Jacket. 6.9 x 4.2 x 1 inches., St. Martin's Paperbacks, 2003

The Pillow Book of Lady Wisteria (Sano Ichiro Novels) - used book

ISBN: 0312983786

ID: 2361103

Samurai sleuth Sano Ichiro has a very personal motive in determining who killed the shogun's heir apparent with a hairpin: he's trying to save himself from being executed for the crime. The Pillow Book of Lady Wisteria introduces readers into Yoshiwara, the well-ordered but cruel pleasure quarter of 17th-century Edo (Tokyo), where the corpse of Lord Mitsuyoshi is found sprawled on a bed. The woman with whom he'd spent his final hours, a top-ranking courtesan known as Lady Wisteria, has disappeared, along with her private journal, which might supply clues to her complicity in this slaying. In the absence of both, and with the capricious old shogun ordering that Mitsuyoshi's family not be quizzed about his death, Sano is left to look for assassins among the courtesan's attendants and prominent clients. Meanwhile, Sano's enemies vie for credit in solving the murder (even if they must pin it on Sano), a woman's headless body is found wearing Wisteria's kimono, and Sano's amateur investigator wife, Reiko, threatens to discover the link between her samurai and the enigmatic prostitute. Laura Joh Rowland cooks up wonderfully knotty plots. Yet it's her renderings of Sano's world--with its Machiavellian politics, exotic fashions, and hierarchical communities--that make her series particularly interesting. Although this seventh installment lacks the cinematic violence of its immediate predecessor, Black Lotus, it still makes you glad to be observ genre fiction,historical,historical fiction,literature and fiction,mystery,mystery thriller and suspense,spy stories and tales of intrigue,thrillers Spy Stories & Tales of Intrigue, St. Martin's Paperbacks
