kj I must disagree with the plot as described. This is not the story of a war amputee and his sadistic wife. She is far from sadistic. It seems that the war amputee was the sadistic one, prior to leaving to fight in the war. He regularly beat and berated his wife for her (apparent) barrenness and inability to bring him a son. When he returns home as an amputee with no hearing and no speech, his wife dutifully attends to him, even though he shows little appreciation for her dedicated care. His main concerns are getting fed and getting sex. Even in his own degraded condition, he manages to berate his wife. Eventually, though, his own memories infiltrate and he is haunted by his horrible, sadistic deeds, performed while in the duty of the Japanese military.
