Endo Shusaku. Kiku’s Prayer.
Translated by Van C. Gessel (2013)
“Endo writes with force and stylistic verve about the vexing experience of living at the intersection between cultures, religions, and belief systems. This novel is a touching, deftly handled character study that traces out the process by which Kiku achieves self-understanding and some measure of spiritual reconciliation.”
—Dennis Washburn, Dartmouth University
