THE LIVES AND COMPLEX RELATIONSHIPS OF WOMEN
AND THEIR FRIENDS AND MOTHERS IS EXPLORED IN
ALL MY DARLING DAUGHTERS
ALL MY DARLING DAUGHTERS explores the often-tempestuous relationship between a single career woman and her mother. Yukiko, a businesswoman in her thirties, still lives with her mother, Mari. But their relationship suffers a wrenching change when Mari announces that she's getting married--to an aspiring actor who's even younger than Yukiko. Convinced that he's out to fleece her mom, Yukiko can't stand to stay in the house any longer and decides to move in with her boyfriend.
“ALL MY DARLING DAUGHTERS is a collection of five short stories that weave a complex tapestry exploring the important emotional relationships in women’s lives,” says Leyla Aker, Editorial Manager, VIZ Media. “Fumi Yoshinaga is known for creating richly developed characters and multi-layered stories that transcend genre.
