A decades-spanning collection from the "founding mother" of modern shojo manga, A Drunken Dream and Other Stories is a collection of short stories by one of Japan's most influential and critically lauded comics innovators.

In "Autumn Journey" (1971), a boy's pilgrimage to the home of his favorite author has more meaning than either the author or his daughter can imagine. In "Marie, Ten Years Later" (1977), two estranged friends learn too late how their actions destroyed the balance of a perfect triad of intimacy. In "A Drunken Dream" (1980), two scientists - one a hermaphrodite, the other a tribal priest - meet on a space station orbiting Io; but they have met before and are destined to meet again. In "Iguana Girl" (1991), a girl who appears to her mother and herself to be a hideous anthropoid iguana struggles to overcome her mother's rejection and find happiness... but her mother has a secret.

A Drunken Dream and Other Stories is illustrated throughout, and includes 16 pages of full color and 16 pages of two-color.

Story and art by Moto Hagio.
