    Returning to Kyoto, where temple bells announce the New Year, a grave and penitent Oki is drawn to a haunting obsession from his past. Gently lyrical, yet fierce with the stark intensity of passion, Kawabata's last novel tells the story of the lasting consequences of a brief love affair.

    With a restraint that barely conceals the ferocity of his characters' passions, one of Japan's great postwar novelists tells the luminous story of Kikuji and the tea party he attends with Mrs. Ota, the rival of his dead father's mistress. A tale of desire, regret, and sensual nostalgia, every gesture has a meaning, and even the most fleeting touch or casual utterance has the power to illuminate entire lives - sometimes in the same moment that it destroys them.

    Roman publié en 1986, Nuées d'oiseaux blancs raconte la féminité portée par quatre personnages qui créent une nébuleuse autour du jeune Kikuji. Empreint d'esthétisme et de sensualité, ce livre dévoile les richesses et les passions de femmes d'âge et d'ambitions différents.
