The Tale Of Kibara Yasuhiro No Mitsuna
J. W. Kilvington
This psychological/historical fiction novel
depicts life and survival in turn of the 15th
century Japan with a brutal eye.
In the Time of Warring States, one man,
finds his revenge, redemption and salvation
as he witnesses the unification of an Empire
while his clan vanishes from existence
tracing a journey through the back avenues
of turn of the 15th century Japan.
We are taken on a Candidesque journey
through the eyes of a master-less Samurai,
the ashes of history, the devastation, which
is civil conflict.
After betrayal, death, murder, loss, love, lust,
destruction, and suffering he rebuilds what
little is left of his life, and in doing so finds
new meaning as to what Life truly is.
The story is a precisely crafted complex
allegory about self-discovery and
enlightenment, and contains the mythical
themes necessary to concoct such a Hero,
a wounded warrior, suffering from PTSD,
who acts as avatar to the reader.
