Yasunari Kawabata

I am now watching Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters via my new Roku device, which streams Netflix Instant Watch movies to our TV. That made me think of Kawabata, because I read both authors during my Japanese-novel-reading period. Kawabata's Beauty and Sadness is incredibly moving and wonderful; it is also smooth and enjoyable to read.

Kawabata received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1968.
