Synopsis: In 1989, comic artist Hideo Azuma succumbs to the pressures of deadlines and tries (unsuccessfully) to hang himself using the slope of a mountain. He leaves his family, wandering as a dumpster bum looking for scraps of food, cigarette butts or discarded alcohol. After several months he is arrested as a vagrant and returned to his home. He then repeats the cycle in 1992 this time becoming a gas pipe fitter in another town. Later, in 1998, his alcohol dependence is so bad he is forced into rehab. This book is his expression of those three periods of his life told, not in a deep or depressed way but, as befits his nature, in a buoyant and cheerful cartoon art.

About the Author: Born 6th February 1950 in Hokkaido, Azuma moved to Tokyo and debuted in manga in 1969. He has produced a large body of work in many genres including the comedy Desperate Angel and the Science Fiction Seiun (Japanese Hugo) Award winning Absurd Diary - an honor shared with Otomo's Akira. He is also considered the father of Lolico manga
