How Do You Live?
The uplifting Japanese classic that has enchanted millions
This beloved coming-of-age classic now published in English for the first time takes readers on a philosophical journey into life's biggest questions through the eyes of fifteen-year-old Copper in Tokyo. As he contemplates the infinite people around him, Copper looks to his wise uncle for answers, leading readers on a poignant and timeless reflection on what it means to be human.
