This collected volume was named after the longest of the four stories that it contains: a drama about an adolescent girl who falls in love with Roger Martin du Gard's saga, Les Thibault. The remaining stories capture various fragments of everyday life with tenderness and humor. Through the kaleidoscope of its feminine views, The Yellow Book touches the readers heart by attending to what, in sum, makes up life—the little things of our every day.

If you’re checking this entry, it’s probably because Kiiroi Hon or Yellow Book, a manga written by Fumiko Takano, won the 2003 Osamu Tezuka Grand Prize, but chances are the name Fumiko Takano will be completely unknown to you except if you’ve read some of her translated interviews with Taiyou Matsumoto or with Katsuhiro Otomo.

She’s actually one of the big influential figures in the industry, she was inspired mainly by Moto Hagio and by some of the big authors of COM (an avant-garde magazine created to rival with Garo) such as Fumiko Okada or Shinji Nagashima and started writing comics in the late 70s. read more
