Description
What impact did World War II and the dropping of the atomic bomb have on the common people of Japan? Through the eyes of an average woman living in 1955, Japanese artist Kouno answers these questions. This award-winning manga appears in English translation for the first time. Kouno's light, free style of drawing evokes a tender reflection of this difficult period in Hiroshima's post-war past. As the characters continue with everyday life, the shadow of the war and the atomic bombing linger ghostlike in the background.
