A beloved and best selling, classic in Japan, and acclaimed throughout the world,  Eto Mori’s Colorful is now available in English for the very first time - we think you might enjoy it.

“Congratulations, you won the lottery!” shouts the Angel property to a formless saw, he’s just been given a second chance. He must redeem himself for the biggest mistake of his past life through “homestay” in the body of 14 year old Makoto Kobayashi, who has just committed suicide.  It looks like Makoto doesn’t have a single friend, and his family doesn’t seem to care about him at all. But as the soul begins to live Makoto’s life on his own terms, he grows closer to the family and the people around him, and sees their true colors, shedding light on Makoto’s misunderstandings.  Julie Lythcott- Haim, a NYT best selling author, shares that this book delivers a reassurance that we will be ok and that we are not alone.  That it is an outstretched hand to young adults - well we think to beings of all ages.

We hope you you meaning  and hope in this book.

We have committed ourselves to bringing you the best in Japanese fiction.  We are glad Colorful has finally been translated with expertise IG Jocelyne Allen.
