‘Congratulations, you’ve won the lottery shouts the angel Prapura to a formless soul. The soul hasn’t been kicked out of the cycle of rebirth just yet  he’s been given a second chance. He must recall the biggest mistake of his past life while on ‘homestay’ in the body of fourteen-year old Makoto Kobayashi, who has just committed suicide. It looks like Makoto doesn’t have a single friend, and his family don’t seem to care about him at all. But as the soul begins to live Makoto’s life on his own terms, he grows closer to the family and the people around him, and sees their true colors more clearly, shedding light on Makoto’s misunderstandings. Since its initial release over twenty years ago, Colorful has become a part of the literary canon, not only in Japan – where it has sold over a million copies  but around the world, having been translated into several different languages. Now, Eto Mori’s beloved classic is finally available in English.
