The American Library Association’s Graphic Novels & Comics Round Table (GNCRT) has announced its 2021 Best Graphic Novels for Adults Reading List, and the top 10 list includes Kabi Nagata’s My Alcoholic Escape from Reality manga.
The story of My Alcoholic Escape from Reality is described as:
Nagata Kabi’s downward spiral is getting out of control, and she can’t stop drinking to soothe the ache of reality. After suffering from unbearable stomach pains, she goes to the hospital, where she is diagnosed with pancreatitis—and is immediately hospitalized. A new chapter unfolds in Nagata Kabi’s life, as she struggles to find her way back to reality and manga creation in the wake of her breakdown.
Shigeru Mizuki’s Tono Monogatari and Junji Ito’s Remina manga were also included in GNCRT’s full list.
