Abstract: Eleven stories by a cosmopolitan Japanese writer. The title story is on the persecution of Christians in Japan; Japanese in Warsaw is on pimping for tourists; Adieu, set in France, is on old age; and Shadows is a young man's cry from the heart when his role model, a Spanish priest, abandons the church for a woman. By the author of The Golden Country.
