Plot Summary: The third collection of Yoshihiro Tatsumi’s gekiga short stories, this volume collects together nine stories from 1971 and 1972. Each story details the life of a despondent, isolated and (in all but one case) male protagonist including a photographer dealing with the emotions and events stirred up by the release of a photo he took at the scene of the Hiroshima bombing, retiring salarymen coming to terms with the emptiness of their lives, a prostitute who earns a living sleeping with the occupying American troops in the aftermath of WWII, a young transvestite and sexually repressed (or dysfunctional) men coping with their urges.
