Biography:

Takeshi Kaiko (1930-1989), winner of his country's highest awards—both the Akutagawa and the Mainichi—was born and raised in Osaka. Originally slated for a career in law (he graduated in law from Osaka City University), he became instead a foreign correspondent, first at the United Nations and then in Vietnam. He is ranked by Japanese critics, with Kobo Abe, as one of Japan's two most important novelists of the generation since Mishima.
