Published by Columbia University Press Keene masterfully blends vignettes describing his personal encounters with these famous men with autobiographical observations and his trademark learned literary and cultural analysis. Keene opens with a confession: before arriving in Japan in , despite having taught Japanese for several years at Cambridge, he knew the name of only one living Japanese writer: Tanizaki. Keene's training in classical Japanese literature and fluency in the language proved marvelous preparation, though, for the journey of literary discovery that began with that first trip to Japan, as he came into contact, sometimes quite fortuitously, with the genius of a generation.
It is a journey that will fascinate experts and newcomers alike.

Each chapter opens with a vignette describing Keene's personal encounters with these famous men, blending his autobiographical observations with literary and cultural analysis. He is the author of more than thirty books, including the definitive multivolume history of Japanese literature, and, most recently, Emperor of Japan: Meiji and His World, — He divides his time between Tokyo and New York City.
