It is based upon the sensational romantic career of the artist Togo Seiji, with whom Uno entered a five-year liaison just after Togo emerged alive from a highly publicized double suicide attempt. The narrator, named Yuasa Joji in the novel, is a familiar Japanese romantic hero, a weak man irresistible to women. Although Yuasa has a way with women, his charms are mixed with passivity. He whips his romances up to a crescendo but can take them no further and he shatters his own life as well as those of his lovers.This novel is a chronicle of the 1920s, when so-called modern girls, known for their bobbed hair as well as their attempts to challenge old and repressive attitudes about a womans place in society, flourished in Japan.
