Nobel Prize winner Yasunari Kawabata felt the essence of his art was to be
found not in his longer works but in a series of short-stories which he
called Palm-of-the-hand-stories - written over the span of his career. In
them we find loneliness, love and the passage of time, demonstrating the
range and complexity of a true master.
