Catalogue Note

Shusaku Endo (1923–1996), a Roman Catholic, was the leading member of the "third generation" of post-war Japanese novelists, coming to maturity in the mid-1950s. Endo's work came in for renewed attention with the 2016 release of Martin Scorcese's film 'Silence', based on Endo's 1966 of the same name. Graham Greene termed Endo, his coreligionist, "to my mind one of the finest living novelists."
