Solitary Gourmet Omnibus GN (L) (Hardcover)

THOUGHT FOR FOOD This is the book in which nothing happens but everything is consumed! Like 'The Walking Man' at lunch!!

What do we learn about Mister Inogashira? He’s a sole, independent trader importing household and fashion goods from France. He is always busy but never rushed as he travels around Japan selling his wares. He’s a private person who, whilst he enjoys the company of women, prefers to remain a bachelor. He smokes cigarettes but never touches alcohol. But above all, he enjoys his food! He is The Solitary Gourmet! Each of the thirty-two chapters explores another dish in another restaurant in another part of town – from Tokyo to Tottori, from Osaka to hospital (yes!) and even ventures to an Algerian restaurant in Paris, eating and observing.

This volume collects all 32 chapters serialized over two decades (originally in Fusosha's monthly 'Panja' magazine) and includes the special hospital chapter. Like an exquisite meal, this book should be savored over and over again.

The Solitary Gourment Manga features story by Masayuki Kusumi and art by Jiro Taniguchi and collects volumes 1-2 in this hardcover omnibus edition.
