Flashbacks and multilayered stories reveal the life of Taro, a relentlessly ambitious Japanese immigrant trying to make his fortune. These flashbacks include memories of an impoverished upbringing as an orphan, his eventual rise to wealth and success --- despite racial and class prejudice --- and an obsession with a girl from an affluent family that has haunted him all his life. A TRUE NOVEL then widens into an examination of Japan’s westernization and the emergence of a middle class.
