    Kinderbook GN (2003 English Edition) 1-1ST

    1st printing. Story and art by Kan Takahama. Kan Takahama's scripts are very clever, very subtle - even when her words are very direct. These are complemented by a range of art that twists and turns with the dialogue, adding an extra dimension to the stories. She tackles subjects as diverse as suicide pacts, mermaids, and barroom chat with a robust-yet-delicate grace. Born in Amakusa, Japan in 1977, Kan's debut in comic art came when her story, "The Women Who Stay," won first prize in a competition and was published by the famous alternative magazine, Garo, in 2001. Further stories and collections followed, later collaborating with Frederic Boilet's "Nouvelle Manga" series to publish their first graphic novel, Mariko Parade this January in Japan. A collection of 10 storiess. Softcover, 6-in. x 8-in., 204 pages, B&W. MATURE READERS NOTE: These are Japanese manga-style GNs and are meant to be read right-to-left.
