The Japanese classic that has delighted millions of readers, in English for the first time.
Following the death of his father, Copper, fifteen, faces enormous changes, and he wonders about things he used to take for granted, including his place in the world, friendship and loyalty, and the role of luck and choice in his future.
Meanwhile, Copper’s uncle writes to him in a journal, sharing knowledge and offering his advice on life’s big questions as Copper begins to consider what matters most.
How Do You Live? is a Japanese classic written for young readers and cherished by many for a lifetime. Academy Award–winning animator Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, Howl’s Moving Castle) has called it his favorite
childhood book and announced plans to make it the basis of his expected final film.
This first-ever English-language edition includes a foreword by fantasy master Neil Gaiman.
