In this volume of discovery and acceptance, we learn that happiness depends on small constant pleasures (meals first and foremost)—and that the reason Kenji fell for Shiro has to do with an ’80s manga. As the couple’s relationship deepens, author Yoshinaga takes the slice-of-life genre to unique heights.

About the Author

Over the past decade few female comic artists have been as beloved or as recognized for their work internationally as Fumi Yoshinaga. Born in Tokyo, Japan in 1971, Yoshinaga is a graduate of Tokyo's prestigious Keio University. A lifelong comic artist and story teller, she made her professional debut in 1994 with her short series, The Moon and the Sandals, serialized in Houbunsha's monthly Boys Love anthology Hanaoto. Since her debut Yoshinaga has penned more than a dozen, with a good number of them having been adapted into motion pictures and animated TV series. Her work on Antique Bakery sent her into international fame and she has since been nominated in the United States for the Eisner Award for her titles - Flowers of Life and Ooku.

In 2009 she was recognized with the James Tiptree Award for her literary contributions covering the topics of gender in speculative fiction in her title Ooku. Ooku also received the Osamu Tezuka Award and the Shogakukan Manga Award.

Praise For…

“The character’s focus on economy and value—not buying expensively, reusing ingredients so nothing
is wasted—is particularly timely and inspirational. The food is also inspiring in how the meals are made up of various small dishes… What a beautiful series, reaching so many points of appeal—taste, emotion, and satisfaction.” — Manga Worth Reading
