    1 thought on “Matari

    1. Zen inspired tragic tale of honour and betrayal in 18th century Japan, written plainly and with restraint by of all people the author of the excessive 1970s satire The Dice Man This short novel could hardly be different, with Rhinehart clearly respectful of the time, place and culture of the subject, bookending and littering the story with idiomatic poems and sayings.It will surprise you if you only know the writer s famous work, but you can enjoy reading this over a sedate, wintry weekend, as [...]

    2. Matari is a complete departure from the author s usual style and material It is a somewhat Americanised version of ancient Japan rather like Kurosawa s Seven Samurai rendered as The Magnificent Seven It is unfortunate that the hero is given a female name ending Oboko but otherwise the characters are well written, and the shocking ending is truly moving.

    3. Matari is currently out of print and very hard to find It was published in the US under the name of White Wind, Black Rider.I really enjoyed this book, very interesting characters, an exciting plot, authentic portrayal of culture and times, poetic text and a thrilling conclusion It s a shame people haven t read it.
