A Good Life in Hell

ByAi Tatebayashi

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
A GOOD LIFE IN HELL tells the life stories of Sumiteru Taniguchi, a Nagasaki atomic bomb survivor, and his wife Eiko. Their shared history offers both a stark look at the horrific legacy of nuclear weapons, as well as a tale of inspiration for all those facing challenges as they pursue meaning and happiness in their own lives. The book contains important lessons about the past, but it is even more about living in the present. Exploring daily rituals in the Taniguchi home as Sumiteru and Eiko enter their 80s, a reader must reflect on how today’s decisions can affect our collective and personal futures. This fully illustrated picture book comes alive through the imaginative and moving drawings of award-winning illustrator Ai Tatebayashi, a native of Japan. Ai crafted the story with support from American cowriter Justin Neely, an artist, editor and writer based in Brooklyn, New York. A GOOD LIFE IN HELL is intended both for teens and adults who are concerned about the world: past, present and future.
