I first heard of Mishima from a friend I loved, she told me that he was one of Japan’s greater writers. Time passed and I later purchased in an impulse many of Philip Glass’ recordings. One of them was Mishima, I loved the music and listen to it for more than a year… and one day I had the curiosity of renting the movie (only to be found on netflix, of course). Well, watching a movie when you know all the music by heart is an exhilarating experience, like feeling more every musical accent, or experiencing more of the frames. I have not read any of his books, but now I have a reason to do so. Does anybody know which book of his would be good to start with?

I later saw Glass in concert in Miami with the Screens, good stuff.
