1 - 2 weeks availability
Lake of Heaven is a tale of the people, culture, and environment of a Japanese mountain village that is sunk to build a dam. As Gary Snyder comments, the story becomes a parable for the larger world, 'in which all of our old cultures and all of our old villages are becoming buried, sunken, and lost under the rising waters of the dams of industrialization and globalization.'
Bruce Allen is an associate professor in the Department of Foreign Languages, School of Medicine, Juntendo University, Japan.
