Lavinia

The Old Capital - Yasunari Kawabata, J. Martin Holman Either the book is poorly written (though Mr. K. is a Nobel winner, for goodness' sake!), the elegant Kyoto dialect difficult to translate or I'm too shallow and unable to get why the Japanese are so keen on processions and festivals: cherry blossom, camphor blossom, maple blossom, tea harvest - all on the same page.
