Beautiful new hardcover edition of Barefoot Gen Volume Four! Striking new design with special sturdy binding. Barefoot Gen is the powerful, tragic, autobiographical story of the bombing of Hiroshima and its aftermath, seen through the eyes of the artist as a young boy growing up in Japan. The honest portrayal of emotions and experiences speaks to children and adults everywhere. Nakazawa's manga illustrates the true impact of nuclear weapons when used against a civilian population. It is vital reading for people of all ages, and especially for today's youth. By keeping this tragedy in our collective consciousness, we can strive to never repeat it and guide humanity towards a course of peace. Barefoot Gen Volume Four -" Out of the Ashes " - resumes 9 days after the bomb, as Gen and his mother continue to struggle amid vast human suffering. Though confronted with the most despicable aspects of humankind, Gen acts with love and compassion.
