The Mask Carver's Son book.

The wind was howling and the wind chimes were rattling in song. I had forgotten how cold Kyoto could be in the winter. e, the futon over my shoulders, and remembered how I had eaten here with my father in the same unnerving silence. I looked into the basin of my soup bowl and hoped to see my mother emerging like a lotus flower from the dark swamp of liquid. When she failed to appear, I forced myself to remember her visage. I wanted to see her magnificent face, translucent as gossamer, looking at me.

Set in turn of the century Japan in the world of the Noh theater, and in Paris during the heady days when French Impressionism was the avant-garde, this heartbreaking, beautifully written novel tells of a young Japanese artist who sacrifices everything: family, love and wealth for his art.

A Master Noh mask carver dedicates his life to his art, turning his back on love after a series of tragic events leaves him devastated. Kiyoki, his only son, defies his father and the demands of cultural tradition to follow his dream of becoming a painter in the western style. Kiyoki journeys to Paris, where he lives the life of an exile, unable to break the bonds of tradition, until he finds his heart leads him back to Japan, where he at last discovers himself as an artist.

I chose this novel because I had just read "The Lost Wife" by the same author, which I loved. The subject matter of this one is very different (late nineteenth century-early twentieth century Japan and Paris as opposed to Czechoslovakia in the 1930s and a Nazi concentration camp). However, it shares the same beautiful language and moving characterizations, the same quality of a life shaped by trials and, in this case, a special talent, but also a kind of personal integrity and way of making peace with one's own fate and actions. I also am very interested in Japanese culture, and enjoyed the exposure to late nineteenth century Japan and the Noh theatre. It also offers thoughtful insights into the role of the artist. (In Paris, Kiyuki's teacher said he had gone from being a painter to becoming an artist, which didn't by any means guarantee worldly success.) I came away from the novel feeling pensive and enriched. I won't wait long to try her latest, The Garden of Letters.

I just finished The Mask Carver's Son and this will be added to my list of all time favorites. Alyson Richman is an amazing writer. The scenes she sets are so deep and detailed that I felt I was watching a movie, rather than reading a novel. I could see the colors the main character used in his paintings, smell the air of Kyoto and Paris, feel the touch of snowflakes on my face. I lived in Japan when I was a child and this book brought all the beauty and tradition that I saw around me every day. From the thatched roofs of the farm houses to the snow shining on the peaks of the mountain to the kimono and tabi that the people wore. As I neared the end of the book, I started reading slower so I could stay with the character Yamamoto Kiyoki a little longer. I understood the difficult choices he had to make on whether to remain with the traditions of his ancestors or to follow his dream. I have been in similar situations and it is never easy. Please take time to read this book. I think you will like it.

A beautiful well written story that details three generation of Japanese artists. A father, a son and a grandfather. The grandfather is an *Noh artist, the son is a mask carver, and the grandson is a student who is planning on doing mask carving according to his own modern interruption. I loved this book maybe it was because I had to work hard in the first couple chapters to get the Japanese names straight that I felt enmeshed with the character. I was in Japan and feeling Zen.

Because I have been to Japan I was able to visualize the beauty and simplicity of the country. Allison Richmond writes in a simple direct lyrical style that fits the country perfectly. She also evoked the culture of respect and obedience that is so typically Japanese. She obviously has studied this country and observed its traditions. I also enjoyed the characterizations, and especially the discussions of Japanese artists. As I read the book I was looking at their works on the Internet. Japanese impressionism is a form of art that I have never known before. The book did not tie up in a neat little knot at the end, but was realistic and emotionally satisfying.

What a wonderful, wonderful book. It was so beautifully written, so sad and moving. The descriptive prose was a joy to read. Some authors go into so much detail you want to skip through large sections of unnecessary writing, some leave way too much to the imagination but with this book I could see the forest, Tokyo, Paris...I could almost smell the smells and feel the rain on my face. It really was a joy to read. The story is brilliant and I was really rooting for the Mask Carver's Son the entire time......
