Two brothers Takashi and Mitsu return from Tokyo to the village of their childhood The selling of their family home leads them to a confrontation with their family history Their attempt to escape the influence of the city ends in failure as they realize that its tentacles extend to everything in the countryside including their relationship, No description available, A Quiet Life is an uncanny blend of the real with the imagined of memoir with fiction A Quiet Life is narrated by Ma chan a twenty year old woman Her father is a famous and fascinating novelist her older brother though severely brain damaged possesses an almost magical gift for musical composition and her mother s life is devoted to the care of them both Ma chan and her younger brother find themselves emotionally on the outside of this oddly constructed nuclear family But when her father accepts a visiting professorship from an American university Ma chan finds herself suddenly the head of the household and at the center of family relationships that she must begin to redefine, These four novels display Oe s passionate and original vision Oe was ten when American jeeps first drove into the mountain village where he lived and his literary work reveals the tension and ambiguity forged by the collapse of values of his childhood on the one hand and the confrontation with American writers on the other The earliest of his novels included here Prize Stock reveals the strange relationship between a Japanese boy and a captured black American pilot in a Japanese village Teach Us to Outgrow Our Madness tells of the close relationship between an outlandishly fat father and his mentally defective son Eeyore Aghwee the Sky Monster is about a young man s first job chaperoning a banker s son who is haunted by the ghost of a baby in a white nightgown The Day He Himself Shall Wipe My Tears Away is the longest piece in this collection and Oe s most disturbing work to date The narrator lies in a hospital bed waiting to die of a liver cancer that he has probably imagined wearing a pair of underwater goggles covered with dark cellophane
