Yoshihiro Tatsumi single handedly spear headed the underground comic movement in Japan. In fact, he was really the only artist of his kind for roughly forty years. He never knew of R. Crumb or Art Speiglman until relatively recently, interestingly enough.

As for the book, it's just as uncomfortably voyeuristic and tragic as his other works. Like The Push man, this includes an interview with Yoshihiro by Adrian Tomine.
