Silence by Shusaku Endo


Shusaku Endo

A book about man's intolerance and inhumanity to his fellow man and his beliefs. The horrors creep onwards and are always expected.


The priest reflected on the days in the hut of Tomogi Mountain with garpe, and how they had talked about torture and whether they could endure it, if once it came their way.
