The Sailer Who Fell from Grace with the Sea - Mishima

A band of savage thirteen-year-old boys reject
the adult world as illusory, hypocritical, and
sentimental, and train themselves in a brutal
callousness they call 'objectivity'. When the
mother of one of them begins an affair with a
ship's officer, he and his friends idealise the
man at first; but it is not long before they
conclude that he is in fact soft and romantic.
They regard this disallusionment as an act of
betrayal on his part - and the retribution is
deliberate and horrifying.
