Flowers of Evil tells the tangled tale of Takao Kasuga, a shy middle-school boy who falls in love with one girl and ends up being blackmailed by another in rural central Japan. Throughout a series of catastrophic adventures, Takao remains absorbed by French poet Charles Baudelaires Les fleurs du mal (The Flowers of Evil), which becomes the key to this engaging, wide-ranging narrative of romance and revelation. Readers have been charmed and captivated by this all-too-credible, yet often outrageous, story of awkward, young love. Flowers of Evil creator Shuzo Oshimi was recognized as one of the most gifted of the younger generation of manga artists, and in 2001 received the Tetsuya Chiba Award.
