A solitary writer, prone to musing on a beautiful woman he once knew, toils away in his cold study to complete a novel. At the urging of a friend, he takes a paddy bird as a pet. The story traces his relationship with the bird, from initial apprehension, to fascination, to indifference, and finally, to tragic neglect.


Soseki Natsume

Natsume Soseki (夏目 漱石, February 9, 1867 - December 9, 1916), born Natsume Kin'nosuke (夏目 金之助), was a Japanese novelist. He is best known for his novels Kokoro, Botchan, I Am a Cat and his unfinished work Light and Darkness. He was also a scholar of British literature and composer of haiku, kanshi, and fairy tales.
