Why We Love This

Boards are in very good condition with very light rubbing to edges and spine. Interior is clean and tight with no marks, stains or tears. Mishima is considered to be one of the most notable Japanese writers of the 20th century. Forbidden Colors is a semi-autobiographical novel about a gay man who marries a young woman.
