In 1930s Japan, the aristocratic Makioka family is sliding into genteel poverty but is determined to uphold its good name and its traditions. Those traditions mostly come into play around the attempt to find husbands for the two youngest sisters—in their mid-to-late 20s, both are verging on spinsterhood.

I picked this novel up because it's widely acclaimed as a modern classic, and because it's so often compared to the work of Jane Austen. Having read it, the Austen comparisons puzzle me. Sure, if you sum up the book in a sentence or two it sounds not dissimilar to Pride and Prejudice or Sense and Sensibility, but the tone and concerns of Austen and Junichiro Tanizaki seem to me wildly different.

As someone who knows very little about Japanese culture, and who is reading this in translation, I'm surely missing many layers of meaning in The Makioka Sisters. I will freely admit that maybe I just don't have the context I need to enjoy the book's subtleties. I get that this is one of those novels where "nothing happens" is the point. But I found this an increasingly dull slog full of prevaricating, static characters whose interiority I never grasped and whose Highly Metaphorical Illnesses were off-putting. (What's that, Skippy? There's a rot inside the body politic?)

And then that last chapter—that last line! I mean, you can't say that Tanizaki didn't commit to the bit, but good lord.

I continue to marvel at the range of Tanizaki’s work; some of it I have loved, some of it I thought just a little too strange. This falls pretty much in the middle for me. The title, in a roundabout way, is the translator’s paraphrase of the American saying “to each his own”; in other words, everyone is entitled to his own taste (or preference). The book, which is often said to be among Tanizaki’s best works, takes place in Japan in the late 1920s and focuses on the conflict between traditional and modern (or Westernized) culture in Japan. Tanizaki uses a variety of oppositions to illustrate this conflict, sometimes directly, sometimes obliquely. Ambiguity is omnipresent. Thus, he sets the customs and reputations of some cities against those of other cities, traditional (Japanese) arts against Western(ized) ones; customary modes of behavior and dress against modern ways; and so forth. The setting is a disintegrating marriage which the wife—with her husband’s knowledge and approval (an indication of his embrace of Western behavior, he believes)—has taken a lover and the husband has become increasingly attached to his father-in-law’s young mistress and even with his father-in-law’s devotion to traditional Japanese culture. Both husband and wife are too weak-willed, despite their unhappiness, to take any definite steps toward divorce, or even to tell their son anything. The subject and Tanizaki’s way of telling the story strikes me as exceptionally Japanese, much more so than other works of his that I have read. I can’t particularly say that I enjoyed it but I can readily understand why it is well-regarded.… (mere)
