"A fascinating book…. The world of Kobo Abe is one in which intellectual concepts have the emotional impact and motivating power of psychotic compulsions."–Newsweek

"A major novel… Since The Woman in the Dunes, Kobo Abe’s stock as a novelist has been very high. The Face of Another raises it still more."–The Christian Science Monitor

"Probes the edges of a waking nightmare….The central, shaping metaphor of face and facelessness is brilliant, and Abe’s relentless pursuit of its every implication is powerful."–The Saturday Review
