In Praise of Shadows - Junichiro Tanizaki (B-010-1-299)
This is an enchanting essay on aesthetics by one of the greatest Japanese novelists. Tanizaki's eye ranges from architecture to food and combines an acute sense of the use of space in buildings with perfect descriptions of lacquerware under candlelight and women in the darkness of a house of pleasure. The result is a classic description of the collision between the shadows of traditional Japanese interiors and the dazzling light of the modern age.
