Chapter Summary

The eight years in solitude after the author had lost Shichi and Nakahata were twice as difficult and painful as the previous score of years had been. His only hope at that time was based on a piece of information he obtained from a newspaper reporting developments towards the end of the war. In fact, he was always busy with leading my day-to-day life. He survived, forbearing the unforbearable, literally on the borderline of survival. About a year after the devastating typhoon, he caught sight of few breadfruits on tree for the first time. The author subsequently suffered from a stomach ulcer twice. The first stomach ulcer took about three months to heal. After having returned to Japan in 1972, a doctor in a Tokyo hospital said that he did not understand the causes of the first stomach ulcer.
