Moto Hagio's A Drunken Dream and Other StoriesBook - 2010
From the critics
SummaryAdd a Summary
Forty years ago, the legendary manga artist Moto Hagio reinvented the shoujo (girl's comics) genre with an ongoing series of whipsmart, psychologically complex, and tenderly poetic stories. Here now, in English for the very first time, as the debut release in Fantagraphics Books' ambitious manga line of graphic novels, are ten of the very best of these tales.
The work in "A Drunken Dream and Other Stories" spans Hagio's entire career, from 1970's "Bianca" to 2007's "The Willow Tree," and includes the mind-bending full-colour title story; the famously heartbreaking "Iguana Girl"; and the haunting "The Child Who Comes Home" - as well as "Autumn Journey," "Girl on the Porch with Puppy," the eerie conjoined-twins shocker "Hanshin: Half God,"Angel Mimic," and one of the saddest of all romance stories, "Marie, Ten Years Later."
"A Drunken Dream and Oyher Stories" is supplemented with a feature-length interview with Hagio, where she discusses her art, her career, and her life with the same combination of wit, candor, and warmth that radiates from every panel of her comics.
