WHEN I WHISTLE

SHUSAKU ENDO    Book Number: 86988    Product format: Paperback

Set largely in a modern hospital, the novel is a shocking exposé of the war between new and traditional values in Spain. On a commercial visit, a jaded businessman has a chance encounter that reminds him of his best friend at school, and memories are stirred of a former love interest, Aiko. His doctor son is contemptuous of the outmoded values of his father's world and ruthless in pursuit of success at the hospital. The story moves towards a terrible climax when Aiko, now middle-aged and suffering from cancer, is admitted to the hospital, and Ozu's son chooses to lead the way in experimenting on her with dangerous drugs. Romantic and elegiac, this is the 1979 original English translation here in facsimile reprint. 277pp in paperback.
