George Leonard, Dutton, 1999
An original and surprising book that provides a fascinating insight into the Samurai code, as Ross tracks in search of a Samurai legend. The book is based on the death of acclaimed novelist Yukio Mishima who in 1970 was the most notorious instance of Seppuku since World War II. A top read. Incidentally, Ross features in Robert Twigger’s, Angry White Pyjamas book.
