The wonderful Lisa Tuttle wrote in her introduction in 2009:

“This short novel is Quentin S. Crisp’s most accomplished work yet, subtle and strange and powerful, a bleak and moving tale of psychological horror. The main character, Brett Stokes, is an Englishman in Japan who’s making use of a few weeks away from home to try to figure out where his last rela- tionship – and his life – went wrong. We’re warned at the beginning that “nothing happened” – and this turns out to be true, in more than one sense.”
