Thirty years before the advent of the literary graphic novel movement in the United States, Yoshihiro Tatsumi created a library of comics that draws parallels to modern prose fiction and today’s alternative comics. The stories collected in The Push Man are simultaneously haunting, disturbing, and darkly humorous. A lone man travels the country, projecting pornographic films for private individuals while attempting to maintain a normal home life. The lives of two men become intertwined when one hires the other to observe his sexual escapades through a telescope. An auto mechanic’s obsession with a female TV personality turns fatal after a chance meeting between the two.


Translated from the Japanese by Yuji Oniki.

Praise for The Pushman and Other Stories

An unflinchingly honest expose on the private lives of ordinary, working-class men living in the hustle and bustle of Japan's thriving metropolis...tragically profound and resonant.
