The face of another.

Translated by Ernest Dale Saunders

In this intellectual horror story, a scientist hideously deformed in a laboratory accident–a man who has lost his face and, with it, his connection to other people. Even his wife is now repulsed by him. His only entry back into the world is to create a mask so perfect as to be undetectable. But soon he finds that such a mask is more than a disguise–it is an alternate self, a self that is capable of anything.
