Book summary

Nobel Prize winner Yasunari Kawabatas Snow Country is widely considered to be the writers masterpiece: a powerful tale of wasted love set amid the desolate beauty of western Japan.
 
At an isolated mountain hot spring, with snow blanketing every surface, Shimamura, a wealthy dilettante meets Komako, a lowly geisha. She gives herself to him fully and without remorse, despite knowing that their passion cannot last and that the affair can have only one outcome. In chronicling the course of this doomed romance, Kawabata has created a story for the ages  a stunning novel dense in implication and exalting in its sadness.  [via]
