A highly cerebral man who often retreats from real life into abstraction - in this case, the poetry of William Blake - K is confronted by his wife with the reality that this child, Eeyore, has been saying and doing disturbing things - behaving aggressively, asserting that hes dead, even brandishing a knife at his mother.

As the days pass, various events - Ks hapless attempts to communicate with his son, Eeyores near drowning during a father-son trip to the swimming pool, a terrible hurricane that nearly destroys the familys mountain cottage and the family inside it - K is forced to question his fitness as a father. K reconsiders his own life - his relationship with his father, his rural upbringing, his relationship with a well-known dissident writer who committed suicide, the responsibilities of artists and writers in Japan generally.

In the end, in part through his obsessive rereading of Blake, K is able to see that things are not always what they seem, especially where his son is concerned, and to trust his heart as well as his mind.
