About the Author

Shusaku Endo, born in Tokyo in 1923, was raised by his mother and an aunt in Kobe where he converted to Roman Catholicism at the age of eleven. At Tokyo's Keio University he majored in French literature, graduating BA in 1949, before furthering his studies in French Catholic literature at the University of Lyon in France between 1950 and 1953. Before his death in 1996, Endo was the recipient of a number of outstanding Japanese literary awards: the Akutagawa Prize, Mainichi Cultural Prize, Shincho Prize, and the Tanizaki Prize, and was widely considered the greatest Japanese novelist of his time.

Reviews

"Somber, delicate, and startlingly empathetic." -- John Updike"One of the best historical novels by anyone, ever." -- David Mitchell, author of Cloud Atlas and The Bone Clocks"I think about Silence, and Endo's work more generally, all the time." -- Phil Klay, author of Redeployment and Winner of the 2014 National Book Award"Silence was in the back of my mind the whole time I was working [on Boxers & Saints]. When I got stuck, I would close my eyes and ask for Endo's intercession." -- Gene Luen Yang, MacArthur Fellow and author of Boxers & Saints"All of Endo's work has been influential. He truly understands what it means to be both of--and not of--a place." -- Caryl Phillips, Guggenheim Fellow and award-winning author of The Lost Child
