Product Description

Ken-to Kanbeni by Fukushima Jiro, former high school teacher and one of Mishima's gay sex friends.

Tokyo - Nearly 30 years after his sensational death by seppukku (ritual suicide), celebrated Japanese author Mishima Yukio's homosexuality continues to haunt his family.

Last month, his family obtained successfully an injunction to halt the printing and selling of a bestseller in which writer Fukushima Jiro details his homosexual relationship with the late author.

The court accepted the copyright claim by Mishima's family (his widow has died already, his daughter and son) to 15 letters written by the author to Fukushima, whose contents they said were revealed in the book without permission.
