House of the Sleeping Beauties, and Other Stories
Three short stories center on a lonely protagonist and his peculiar eroticism. An exploration of the interplay of fantasy and reality at work on a mind in solitude.
Follows the story of a tragic affair between a wealthy dilettante and a mountain geisha who gives herself to him without illusions or regrets, in a tale of wasted love.
