Drifting Life, A Graphic Novel

Spanning fifteen years from August of 1945 to June of 1960, Tatsumi's stand-in protagonist, Hiroshi, faces his father's financial burdens and his parents' failing marriage, his jealous brother's deteriorating health, and the innumerable pitfalls that await him in the competitive manga market of mid-twentieth-century Japan. He dreams of following in the considerable footsteps of his idol, manga artist Osamu Tezuka - with whom Tatsumi eventually became peers and, at times, stylistic rivals.

Story and art by Yoshihiro Tatsumi.
