Hailed as the greatest Japanese novel of the Twentieth century, The Makioka Sisters is a subtle tale of domestic oppression worthy of Balzac or Chekhov, In this saga of the once prosperous but now declining Makioka family struggling to marry off one of their daughters, Tanizaki presents the picture of a family and a society striving to preserve their self-respect as they come to terms with disturbing new ways in a classic confrontation of innovation and tradition. A wonderful portrait of Japanese life in the first half of the twentieth century.

Read the book then bring your thoughts and perspective to a lively discussion.
