Praise

“Japan’s great modern novelist É. Tanizaki created a lifelong series of ingenious variations on a diominan theme: the power of love to energize and destroy.” —Chicago Tribune

The Key is a story about sex and marriage that is as explicit as any novel on the theme since Lady Chatterly’s Lover.” –Time

“The diarist Utsugi is an absolutely convincing creationÉfunny and ultimately appealing.” —The Atlantic
