Heartless Bitch, by Kiriko Nananan

Kiriko Nananan made her comic debut in 1993 in Japanese magazine Garo with 'Hole'. Her work is listed among the 'typically female manga', a genre that has developed in Japan since Murasaki Yamada, in the 1970s. It realistically and poetically depicted the casual, everyday life of women. During the eighties and nineties, more female manga artists started making comics about being women and sex from a female perspective. Nananan has rightly earned her fame in this field, creating personal and sensitive stories. In 1996, she published the short story collection 'Water'. Two of the stories in this book have been printed in 'Secret Comics Japan', a collection of modern Japanese underground comics.
