About This Book

" Intrepid journalist and novelist William T. Vollman' s colossal body of work stands unsurpassed for its range, moral imperative, and artistry. " — Booklist   William T. Vollmann, the National Book Award– winning author of Europe Central, offers a charming, evocative, and piercing examination of the ancient Japanese tradition of Noh theatre and the keys it holds to our modern understanding of beauty.   Kissing the Mask is the first major book on Noh by an American writer since the 1916 publication the classic study Pisan Cantos and the Noh by Ezra Pound. But Kissing the Mask is pure Vollman— illustrated with photos by the author with provocative related side-discussions on femininity, transgender, kabuki, pornography, geishas, and more.
