One of the greatest Japanese novelists ever. The Silent Cry is one of the most beautiful and emotional novels I’ve ever read.

TOKYO, March 13 (Reuters) - Kenzaburo Oe, who won Japan its second Nobel Prize for literature with books about the horrors of war and about his disabled son, has died at the age of 88.

Oe also later became known as a prominent campaigner against nuclear weapons and nuclear power.

His death, on March 3, was due to old age, his publisher Kodansha said.

I hope this is the right section to post this.
