Winter Sleep, translated by Mark Schilling, is a first-person psychological study of a complicated and lonely abstract artist spending his winter in a cabin near Nagano, Japan. Having been a promising artist who accidentally kills someone during a fight, he has left jail and continued his painting. It's not that the work is particularly visual, but the way that it describes the action and motivations of the painter who is the main character had me visualizing my own paintings, should I ever actually pick up a brush!

Winter Sleep (original title: Fuyu no Nemuri), trans.

Kikataka, whose first book in English, Ashes, saw the hardboiled ethic at work in the gangster world, uses the same perspective to subtle effect in this story of an artists quest for growth. The message is that one's stance towards the world affects one's art. The hardboiled is an aesthetic as well as an ethic.

The legendary Japanese master's Winter Sleep take you into the hardboiled world of art -- where ex-cons are philosophers, young lovers are combustible, and aesthetics is life. An artist's quest for growth from one of the world's greatest stylists. Nakagi, an ex-con painter who has sequestered hismself in a mountain cabin, is trying to elevate his art. The only thing breakin his solitude are the visits of two women: an art dealer who wants him to produce the sort of paintings that she would like to buy from him, and a young aspiring, and soulful apprentice. When Nakagi welcomes an escaped felon into the emotionally fraught fold, and begins to teach him to pain well. Winter Sleep awakens to a literally incendiary climax.

Want to know Van Gogh?
Reach into the artistic heart of the Mad Ones?
Mozart, Beethoven, Gauguin, those who lived and died for their art, caring little for the accepted ways of us all?
Want to know Poe?
Here they are. The book is called a "mystery". No! It is a great novel---noir, existential, deep---delving into the uncharted depths of those who are driven beyond mere existence---those for whom it can be said, " the Artist lives, the rest exist." There are other great artists created in fiction, Gulley Jimson of "The Horse's Mouth" comes to mind, not as destructive as Nakagi, not as reclusive quite, but a man just as far apart. What comes to mind is Don Marquis' "The Lesson of the Moth"---"i wish I wanted something as bad as that moth wanted to fry himself."

I was fascinated with this book, as I was with ASHES. Each took me into the life and thoughts of someone I would never expect to identify with, and I was completely absorbed. I appreciated sharing the most mundane moments in first person with the principal character, as well as his high and low moments. In a way that Takeshi Kitano did with his early gangster films, I felt that I had been given an important insight into what it could really be like to be an artist.

The characters were very interesting and complex, each with a mysterious history, and their interactions were highly unexpected right to the end. The plot moved forward in a logical manner, and the ending was satisfying, something I can't say for many Japanese novels I have read.

Kitaka seems to be known as a crime writer, but crime didn't seem to be the main emphasis here. A good book!
