Ogata Shingo is growing old, and his memory is failing him. At night he
hears only the sound of death in the distant rumble from the mountain. The
relationships which have previously defined his life � with his son, his
wife, and his attractive daughter-in-law � are dissolving, and Shingo is
caught between love and destruction. Lyrical and precise, The Sound of the
Mountain explores in immaculately crafted prose the changing roles of love
and the truth we face in ageing.
