Synopsis of Kimitachi wa Dou Ikiru ka

“How Do You Live?” It begins with Copper, a fifteen-year-old boy who has recently suffered the loss of his father, looking out over his hometown of Tokyo, looking at the thousands of people below, and beginning to ask life’s big questions. How many people are there in the world? How are their lives? Are we made of molecules? The book moves between Copper’s story and his uncle’s diary entries, in which he gives her advice and helps her learn fundamental truths about how the world works.

Over the course of a year of his life, Copper, like his namesake Copernicus, embarks on a journey of philosophical enlightenment, using his discoveries about heaven, earth, and human nature to determine the best way to live. Yoshino perfectly captures the beauty and strangeness of prewar Japan—the changing of the seasons, the fried tofu and taiyaki stalls, and the lush landscapes—as Copper explores the city on her bike, learning from her friends and family what really matters more in life.
