Praise

Praise for Volume 2 of My Brother’s Husband:

“Achingly true. . . At its heart, My Brother’s Husband is the story of a man coming to terms with the unquestioned cultural assumptions he’s harbored all his life. But the genius of Tagame’s art lies in its ability to slyly suggest—but by no means insist—that Yaichi’s real journey of discovery may have just begun.”—NPR

“This manga is powerful, and Tagame’s prowess within the genre shines through every page. . . [My Brother’s Husband] sneaks up on you, steals your heart away and refuses to return it. . . It will absolutely not disappoint.”—Looking Glass Reads

“My Brother’s Husband
is not a subtle manga, but it is a legitimately moving one. By realistically portraying how prejudice and discrimination directly impact the characters’ lives and deeply inform their relationships, Tagame’s message of love is made abundantly clear.”Manga Bookshelf

“Poignant emotional depth. . . [a] gentle story. . . This well-paced, empathy-building story has lots of appeal and would be a good choice for readers making their first forays into manga.”Booklist

“Tagame’s mastery of the human form allows him to simplify his approach. . . lending the book an inviting, open cartooning style, and further positioning My Brother’s Husband as an accessible look at what it means to be gay in a different culture.”Paste Magazine

Praise for Volume 1 of My Brother’s Husband:


“Not only is My Brother’s Husband very touching; it’s also, for the non-Japanese reader, unexpectedly fascinating. Gay life remains largely closeted in Japan, and Tagame’s complex but deftly told story seeks to examine the effect such secrecy has, not only on those who must live it, but also on their wider family relationships.”The Guardian (London) 

“Refreshing. Transporting. Clever. Inspiring. If these are qualities that help books rise to the top of your summer reading list, your new number one is My Brother’s Husband….The story moves along quietly and gently, Tagame cleverly evoking parallels between mutual misperceptions of gays and straights, older and younger generations, Westerners and Japanese.” Passport Magazine

“Inviting black-and-white illustrations deftly capture the characters’ wide range of emotions, from joy to grief and beyond. . . Endearing and enlightening.”Kirkus Reviews [starred]

“Here is a beautiful, well-crafted tale of family and love. At its core, it really is about nothing more than love in all its forms. It is unrelentingly cute, sweet, and joyous; a celebration of love both familial and romantic, and a true pleasure to read.”Books and Bao
