    The Gate

    The Gate is the story of an unhappy man, buffeted by the cares and troubles of everyday life, who at last seeks refuge in a remote Zen mountain monastery. At once melancholy and joyous, profound and simple, The Gate shows the Japanese master Sōseki at the pinnacle of his achievement. This new translation of The Gate is the most graceful and accurate English-language edition to appear to date.
