Welcome to the quiet, evocative urban dramas of Masahiko Matsumoto, one of the leading lights of the Japanese alternative-comics movement known as "gekiga." Originally published in 1974, these eleven stories now form the first English-language collection of Matsumoto's mature work. His shy, uncertain heroes face broken hearts, changing families, money troubles, sexual anxiety, and the pressures of tradition, but with a whimsy and lightness of touch that is Matsumoto's trademark.

I stumbled across this manga. I had never heard of it before, and I found a copy in a bookshop - and thank goodness for that.

Cigarette Girl is a collection of rather similar stories, but each one feels fresh and different. We learn about a man who buys cigarettes from the same girl every day, even though he doesn't smoke; we are invited into the world of a young couple who purchase two tickets 'to somewhere'; and we are allowed a glimpse into the world of a man, a woman and their new dog.

The stories (save one) are short. They are not full, rounded tales, read more
