Description
Still in her early twenties, beautiful Toshiko Tomura has won the Akutagawa Prize for her story “The Book of Human Insects.” The great honor is not her first: she has previously won the New York Design Academy Award, before which she was the lead actress of an established theatrical troupe. Yet, while the media go abuzz, the woman in the limelight slips away from the metropolis; what the sole paparazzo who manages to trail her to an abandoned country house witnesses is an immobile figure of an old woman and the star herself, naked, in a reverie as bizarre as it is erotic…

Best manga ever?

I don't know about that. But this book (which I read in a Spanish translation a few years ago) has to be in my list of 10 or even 5 best mangas I have ever read. Psychology and hybris packed sad story.
