Disappearance Diary

Published April 1, 2010 by Graham


Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you just abandoned everything? What would happen if you ran away from home without warning? Veteran manga artist Hideo Azuma’s illustrated memoir Disappearance Diary answers that question in fascinating detail. Several times in his life, Azuma unexpectedly ditched his career and family without so much as a plan. Disappearance Diary outlines the rugged realities and comical encounters that emerged out of his uncertain, venturesome lifestyle, from shameful dumpster dives to the strange characters Azuma encounters as a manual laborer, and the moral uncertainty of stealing food from neighboring hobo encampments.
