[Novel] Snow Country (Yasunari Kawabata)

Snow CountryAn affair between a rich good-for-nothing man and a geisha that is only interesting because of its exotic setting.

Positive: Negative:
Exotic setting of a remote northern Japanese hot spring town Protagonist is a bastard
Illuminating on Japan’s pre-WWII culture Plot is not particularly gripping
Thought provoking on human relationships Simplistic story
