Just So Happens, Hardback Book

Description

'I still remember arriving in the city for the first time...

It wasn't easy... But here, London, is my home.'Yumiko is a young Japanese woman who has made London her home.

She has a job, a boyfriend; Japan seems far away. Then, out of the blue, her brother calls to tell her that her father has died in a mountaineering accident. Yumiko returns to Tokyo for the funeral and finds herself immersed in the rituals of Japanese life and death - and confronting a decision she hadn't expected to have to make. Just So Happens is a graphic novel by a young artist and storyteller of rare talent.

Fumio Obata's drawing, in particular, is marvellous in its power and delicacy.
