BOOKPOODAH Maybe Gave Bad Poodah

I don't remember where I got the idea that Mishima died in a furniture store display window, so, for now, I must defer to what appears to be a more authoritative source. If I weren't so busy (and lazy ), I'd look it up. But that's no fun, anyway. So here is a communication I received last week:


Yukio Mishima did not commit seppuku on the second floor of a commercial establishment, as it says on your website. He killed himself at the headquarters of the Eastern Army (Japanese Self-Defense Force) at Ichigaya base on

November 23, 1970.

Cordially, Dave Craik
