It definitely deserves a re-read, but in the meantime I wonder whether anyone has any recommendations for further reading. Novels or non-fiction with Go as a thread? Other works by Kawabata? Although Wikipedia says that The Master of Go "is in severe contrast to his other works", so perhaps there is nothing similar. Anything stand-out in Seidensticker's other translations, or in his own works?
There are over 4000 books tagged "Go" on LT, http://www.librarything.com/tag/go, but hardly surprisingly they mostly - with the excepton of "Hikaru no Go" - seem to be Go books.
In the non-fiction side, a rare case of an English translation of a Japanese work that isn't just technical exercises is the long-out-of-print The Treasure Chest Enigma (see here).
Here's a pretty comprehensive list:
edit: I forgot The Go Companion by John Fairbairn. He's the #1 writing Western expert on go history and culture.
