    "Silence I regard as a masterpiece, a lucid and elegant drama." Irving Howe. -- The New York Times Review Of Books *** Susaku Endo is Japan's foremost novelist, and Silence is generally regarded to be his masterpiece. In a perfect fusion of treatment and theme, this powerful novel tells the story of a seventeenth Portuguese priest in Japan at the height of the fearful persecution of the small. Silence is pretty much just Lost In Translation—but with Catholic priests instead of Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson. Not a fair trade, we know, but you'll survive. In the novel, we follow Father Sebastien Rodrigues, a Jesuit missionary of Portuguese descent, as he spreads the Gospel in s Japan. This isn't a walk in the park, however.
