Summary

'' These stories get under your skin and invite rereading.'' '' - - BookForum '''''' ''Abandon the Old in Tokyo ''is the second in a three-volume series that collects the short stories of Japanese cartooning legend Yoshihiro Tatsumi. Designed and edited by Adrian Tomine, the first volume, ''The Push Man and Other Stories,'' debuted to much critical acclaim and rightfully placed Tatsumi as a legendary precursor to the North American graphic-novel movement. ''Abandon the Old in Tokyo ''continues to delve into the urban underbelly of 1960s Tokyo, exposing not only the seedy dealings of the Japanese everyman but Tatsumi' s maturation as a story writer.

Author Bio
