"This is the fictionalized version of the life and times of Japanese author Natsume Soseki during an era of great change in Japan from the traditional Edo period into the modern Meiji period (1867 - 1912). Soseki is considered the Charles Dickens or Mark Twain of Japan. His image even appeared on the 1000 yen note for two decades. He is best known for his novel Botchan, on whose times this book is based, and the short I Am A Cat which is integrated into these pages. In this second volume the cat dies and Botchan is finally written. Taniguchi marries talent to a solid script by Sekikawa to create a fresco of Japanese society towards the end of the Meiji period as Japan was beginning to open up to the West. What could have been simply an illustrated textbook becomes, in these capable hands, a narrative for adults of great artistic and historical significance."--Amazon website

Jiro Taniguchi ("The Walking Man", "The Caucasian Elm") marries talent to a solid script by Natsuo Sekikawa to present us with "The Times of Botchan", a fresco of Japanese society towards the end of the Meiji period, when the country was beginning to open up to the West. What in hands of another author could have simply been an illustrated textbook becomes a narrative for adults of great artistic and historic significance. The writer Sōseki Natsume, who suffers from neurosis as a consequence of cultural shock, conceives of what will be his new book, "Botchan", as a response to the challenges of his time. Other famous characters of that time appear along with him in a portrayal of the political, social and cultural life of what was arguably the most important period in the history of Japan
