The third book in the epic Tales of the Otori series - timeless storytelling that crosses genres, genders and generations
Lian Hearn studied modern languages at Oxford University and
worked as a film critic and arts editor in London before settling
in Australia. A lifelong interest in Japan led to the study of the
Japanese language, many trips to Japan, and culminated in the Tales
of the Otori series.
She is also the author of a prequel series to Tales of the Otori, The Tale of Shikanoko, which begins with Emperor of the Eight Islands.
