Asano's Early Work

by Alex on 12/2/2013

'What A Wonderful World' is not only Asano's first short story collection, but first manga work overall. Fortunately, this in no way implies that this series is inferior to his later work. During this time he was still honing his craft, but it still shines through. Asano presents before us a brilliant collection of short stories, each subtly interconnected in minor ways that accurately embody everyday life, how it connects us, and how sometimes we're just background characters in other people's stories. A precursor to Asano's literary genius, 'What A Wonderful World' is definitely worth the read.

Product Overview

Life is never ordinary. R to L (Japanese Style). What begins with a college dropout bored of her mediocre routine soon becomes a fantastic series of vignettes about the unexpected ways that lives intersect. Filled with magical realism in the face of the cold reality of modern life, at their core these stories are about discovering something precious in the chaos of existence. A dream recaptured. A life on a new track. The absurdity of death. Laughter in the face of reality. With this series of intersecting vignettes, Inio Asano explores the ways in which modern life can be ridiculous and sublime, terrible and precious, wasted and celebrated.
