The second Cat Thursday of each month is Authors and Cats Thursday. Each time I will feature an author with their cat(s), or pictured with a cat(s).
This month's author, whose birthday would have been January 14, 1925, is Yukio Mishima. He died November 25, 1970. Yukio Mishima was the pen name of Kimitake Hiraoka, who was a Japanese author, poet and playwright, famous for both his highly notable post-war writings and the circumstances of his ritual suicide by seppuku.
Mishima wrote 40 novels, 18 plays, 20 books of short stories, and at least 20 books of essays, one libretto, as well as one film. A large portion of this oeuvre comprises books written quickly for profit, but even if these are disregarded, a substantial body of work remains.
He was recognized as one of the most important post-war stylists of the Japanese language.
