About the Book

Set in a fictional working-class district in downtown Tokyo in the mid-1960’s, these linked stories illuminate daily life early in the period of postwar economic growth. Young readers will be fascinated by the intertwining lives of nine-year-old Kazuo Nakamoto, younger brother Yasuo, and classmates Nobuo, Minoru, and Nishino-kun, as they wander through a world that is both old and new, marked by a widespread fascination with Western culture and the repercussions of WWII on the parents’ generation.
