Series Brief Review
Published by Kodansha in 2002 and awarded the prestigious Tezuka Cultural Prize, Fumiko Takano's The Yellow Book is one of those rare works which you enjoy reading in order to feel the tender familiarity that arises between the protagonists and yourself. 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.
