Summary
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author and star of Netflix's Tidying Up with Marie Kondo , this graphic novelization brings Kondo's life-changing tidying method to life with the fun, quirky story of a woman who transforms her home, work, and love life using Kondo's advice and inspiration.

Marie Kondo presents the fictional story of Chiaki, a young woman in Tokyo who struggles with a cluttered apartment, messy love life, and lack of direction. After receiving a complaint from her attractive next-door neighbor about the sad state of her balcony, Chiaki gets Kondo to take her on as a client. Through a series of entertaining and insightful lessons, Kondo helps Chiaki get her home--and life--in order. This insightful, illustrated case study is perfect for people looking for a fun introduction to the KonMari Method of tidying up, as well as tried-and-true fans of Marie Kondo eager for a new way to think about what sparks joy. Featuring illustrations by award-winning manga artist Yuko Uramoto, this book also makes a great read for manga and graphic novel lovers of all ages.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "A well-organized closet is the key to success in this spin-off from Kondo's wildly popular self-help book. Protagonist Chiaki is in dire need of assistance: her apartment is an ocean of clutter, and it's casting a pall over all aspects of her life. Luckily, Kondo is here to help her fold her t-shirts, toss her junk mail, discard books she's never going to read, and, in so doing, forge a path to true happiness. The "KonMari" method claims to be a form of magic that can unlock everything from promotions at one's job to romantic opportunities. This is, to put it mildly, a bit fanciful. But Kondo's organizing methods are undeniably effective, especially for anyone overwhelmed by the thought of finding a place to start tackling the mess. Uramoto's charming illustrations are flexible enough to capture both the fairylike Kondo and the true nightmare of Chiaki's living room. (June) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
