Cartoonist Keiji Nakazawa was seven years old and living in Hiroshima in the early days of August 1945 when the city was destroyed by an atomic bomb dropped by the U.S.A. In this volume Gen fights against a corrupt medical system, the discriminatory practices of his neighbors, and the American presence in postwar Japan. Gen's brother, Koji, has gone away to work in the coal mines, but has since disappeared. To make up for the shortage, he and his friends must resort to more drastic measures, which lands one of the bunch in a juvenile detention center." -- Publisher's website

"Volume eight opens in 1950. Gen is now in middle school, where he meets both a progressive-minded schoolteacher at odds with his conservative superiors, and a brilliant but cynical classmate who challenges the teacher's-- and Gen's-- values at every turn. Gen also finds himself confronting the corrosive effects of drugs and the arms industry on postwar Hiroshima society. With the Korean War offering new business opportunities, a new generation of death merchants holds sway in Japan. Gen, his mentor, and peace-minded citizens are forced to struggle against red-baiting school officials, violent nationalists, and government censorship"--Page 4 of cover

"Cartoonist Keiji Nakazawa was seven years old and living in Hiroshima in the early days of August 1945 when the city was destroyed by an atomic bomb dropped by the United States. Starting a few months before that event, his ten-volume saga Barefoot Gen shows life in Japan after years of war and privations, as seen through the eyes of seven-year-old Gen Nakaoka. In Volume Nine, Gen continues to confront one setback after another -- the loss of his home, the death of a friend -- when a chance encounter gives new direction to his life. An impoverished but talented artist takes Gen under his wing and teaches him to paint. Inspired by the artist's assertion that 'art has no borders, ' Gen vows to become an artist himself, and takes a job as apprentice to a local poster painter. Despite merciless bullying from his boss and the older apprentices, Gen perseveres in the pursuit of his new calling"--Page 4 of cover

Picking up from volume six, the story opens with Gen searching for a printer willing to publish an eyewitness account of the bombing written by 'Papa, ' the journalist who serves as a father figure to Gen's war orphan friends. By hook and crook Gen and Ryuta manage to get the book printed and distributed, only to arouse the wrath of U.S. Army censors, who teach them a hard lesson about the politics of memory. Meanwhile, Gen's brother Koji returns home at last, only to find that their mother is on her deathbed"--Page 4 of cover

"Récit en grande partie autobiographique : né à Hiroshima en 1939, quatrième d'une famille de six enfants, Keiji Nakazawa a perdu son père, sa sœur et son frère cadet lors du bombardement du 6 août 1945. Au début du récit, Gen Nakaoka, son frère Shinji et son père admirent fièrement la parcelle de blé familiale. Nous sommes en avril 1945, à Hiroshima. La guerre du Pacifique, qui oppose le Japon aux Etats-Unis, touche à sa fin. Les Nakaoka luttent contre une faim obsédante. Sans compter les multiples alertes aériennes et les persécutions que leur font subir leurs voisins en raison du pacifisme militant du père. Le premier tome s'achève quatre mois plus tard, lorsque la bombe explose à 550 mètres au dessus de la ville. Un témoignage essentiel sur le bombardement d'Hiroshima et la vie quotidienne au Japon, occupé par l'armée américaine, complété, pour chacun des tomes de la série, par des documents historiques."
