The Lake by Yasunari Kawabata, translated by Reiko Tsukimura [in AsianWeek]

LakeAn oddly compelling novella about a lonely man who never quite gets the girl – any girl – but is unwilling to give up trying. Indeed, few writers can do isolation quite like Kawabata, the Nobel-Prize-winning author best known for his lyrical Snow Country.
